Sigmund Schlomo Freud

Born: 6 May 1856

Died: 23 September 1939

Nationality: Austrian



Sigmund Freud was an Austrian neurologist, who is seen as the ‘Father of Psychoanalysis’. Freud qualified as a doctor at the University of Vienna in 1881, and then carried out research into Cerebral Palsy, Aphasia and Neuroanatomy at the Vienna General Hospital. In 1885, he was appointed docent in Neuropathology and became an affiliated Professor in 1902.

 

Freud elaborated the theory that the mind is a complex energy-system. He articulated and refined the concepts of unconscious, infantile sexuality and repression. He proposed a tripartite account of the mind’s structure as part of a new conceptual and therapeutic frame of reference for the treatment of bad mental conditions.

 

 

Freud is a great utopian as he innovated the fields of psychology, psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. His psychoanalytical theories have been proven extremely accurate and have helped many who struggle with mental disorders. Equally, his theories have had wider implications for a variety of academic disciplines, including, anthropology, semiotics and artistic creation.
