Description


A national bestseller


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



"[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



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.

Praise For…


Intelligent and wholly absorbing.… Judicious, original biography, scrupulously grounded in close readings of [Freud's] work.
— Michiko Kakutani - New York Times

Brilliant.… A dazzling performance.… Gay's ability to integrate into a coherent whole the vast published and unpublished literature on Freud including hundreds of previously unknown or inaccessible letters is awesome.… A work of art.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

Elegant… puts Freud's life into the context of his time while attempting to explain him for readers who cannot escape his shadow. In Gay's hands, the Olympian figure is almost within mortal reach.
— Michael Skube - Raleigh News and Observer
