About the Author:

Peter Gay (1923―2015) was the author of more than twenty-five books, including the National Book Award winner The Enlightenment, the best-selling Weimar Culture, and the widely translated Freud: A Life for Our Time.


A magisterial contribution to the history of ideas. A fresh, illuminating perspective on one of the pivotal figures of our time. -- J. Anthony Lukas

Brilliant. . . . A dazzling performance. . . . Gay's ability to integrate into a coherent whole the vast published and unpublished literature on Freud-including hundreds of previously unknown or inaccessible letters-is awesome. . . . A work of art. -- Jonathan Sharp, San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle

Intelligent and wholly absorbing. . . . [A] judicious, original biography, scrupulously grounded in close readings of [Freud's] work. . . . For the lay reader one of the virtues of this biography is Gay's lucid and succinct analysis of Freud's essential texts. -- Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

[This] remarkable biography . . . briskly traces the story of Freud's life and education, deftly weaving the familiar narrative with a style that makes it seem fresh and lively. -- Chicago Tribune
