10 Things You Didn't Know About Freud
Presented by Alistair Ross
Synopsis:Sigmund Freud holds an endless fascination, not simply because of his unique ideas that helped share the 20th century. A complex character, he was a man of contrasts. He could be charismatic, charming, yet also caustic and callous. Once crossed he was never forgiving. An ardent atheist, he was fascinated by his Jewish religion. This lecture explores some lesser-known aspects of his life. Alistair Ross is author of: Freud - Pocket Giant (History Press, 2016); Introducing Contemporary Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy (Open University Press, 2019); and Sigmund Freud: Life and Work (Rowman & Littlefield, 2022)
