About this title


Examines Freud's life, character, and thought and his relationships with those men and women theorists and therapists who significantly disagreed with him and those who remained loyal to his teachings

From the Back Cover:

Paul Roazen's classic study of Sigmund Freud and his complex relationships with the men and women who formed his circle is widely recognized as the best portrait of Freud and his world, and it focuses as much on the human dramas involved as on the ideas the participants developed.
