In just a few short weeks I'll be talking about Freud as a fictional character to a group of people who either belong to the Austrian Cultural Forum or the American Psychoanalytic Association.

So Breger´s recent book "A Dream of Undying Fame“ is not a revision of psychoanalysis and not a call to restore the status quo ante Freud, but a concise, caring résumé, re-examining and presenting in nuance the achievements and failures of psychoanalysis. It is a book against the theoretical...

We know that Freud insisted on sex as the key to neurosis. This led him to some grotesque results such as telling a psychotic patient to divorce his wife, leave his children and re-marry because sexual satisfaction would cure him. Guess what. It didn't. The first wife died in poverty and the second...
