Critical Praise

“Freud, more than any other explorer of the psyche, shaped the mind of the 20th century” - Peter Gay, Time magazine

“The founder of psychoanalysis gave the world more than a theory and a therapy. He provided a world view. His ideas about dreams, religion, creativity, and the unconscious motivations underlying all human behavior are so pervasive that it would be difficult to imagine twentieth-century thought without them.” - Newsweek

“Freud is a deep explorer of the human condition, working in a tradition which goes back to Sophocles and which extends through Plato, Saint Augustine and Shakespeare to Proust and Nietzsche. . . .no thinker has made creativity and imagination more democratically available than Freud. This is one of the truly important consequences of locating the unconscious inside the psyche. Creativity is no longer the exclusive preserve of the divinely inspired, or the few great poets. From a psychoanalytic point of view, everyone is poetic; everyone dreams in metaphor and generates symbolic meaning in the process of living.” - New Republic
