ზიგმუდ ფროიდი (Sigmund Freud)

Sigmund Freud (1856–1939)



  Sigmund Freud –  born Sigismund Schlomo Freud (6 May 1856 – 23 September 1939), was an Austrian neurologist who founded the discipline of  psychoanalysis. Freud’s family and ancestry were Jewish, and Freud always considered himself a Jew, although he rejected Judaism and had a critical view of religion.  Freud’s parents were poor, but ensured his education. Freud was an outstanding pupil in high school, and graduated the Matura with honors in 1873. Interested in philosophy as a student, Freud later turned away from it and became a neurological researcher into cerebral  palsyAphasia  and microscopic neuroanatomy.

Freud went on to develop theories about the unconscious  mind and the mechanism of repression,

and established the field of verbal psychotherapy by creating psychoanalysis, a clinical method for treating  psychopathology  through dialogue between a patient (or “analysand”) and a psychoanalyst. Though psychoanalysis has declined as a therapeutic practice, it has helped inspire the development of many other forms of psychotherapy, some diverging from Freud’s original ideas and approach. Freud postulated the existence of  libido  (an energy with which mental process and structures are invested), developed therapeutic techniques such as the use of free association  (in which patients report their thoughts without reservation and make no attempt to concentrate while doing so), discovered the transference (the process by which patients displace on to their analysts feelings based on their experience of earlier figures in their lives) and established its central role in the analytic process, and proposed that dreams help to preserve sleep by representing as fulfilled wishes that would otherwise awake the dreamer. He was also a prolific essayist, drawing on psychoanalysis to contribute to the interpretation and critique of culture.

Freud’s theories have been criticized as pseudo-scientific and sexist,  and they have been marginalized within psychology departments, although they remain influential within the humanities.  Critics have debated whether it is possible to test Freudian theories.  Some researchers claim evidence exists for some of Freud’s theories.  Freud has been called one of the three masters of the “school of suspicion”, alongside Karl Marx and Friedrich Nietzsche, while his ideas have been compared to those of  Plato  and Aquinas.


Sigmund  Freud  Quotes:

No one who, like me, conjures up the most evil of those half-tamed demons that inhabit the human breast, and seeks to wrestle with them, can expect to come through the struggle unscathed.

SIGMUND FREUD, Dora: An Analysis of a Case of Hysteria

The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is “What does a woman want?”

SIGMUND FREUD, Ernest Jones’ Sigmund Freud: Life and Work

If one wishes to form a true estimate of the full grandeur of religion, one must keep in mind what it undertakes to do for men. It gives them information about the source and origin of the universe, it assures them of protection and final happiness amid the changing vicissitudes of life, and it guides their thoughts and motions by means of precepts which are backed by the whole force of its authority.

SIGMUND FREUD, New Introductory Lectures on Psychoanalysis

Religion is an illusion and it derives its strength from the fact that it falls in with our instinctual desires.

SIGMUND FREUD, New Introductory Lectures on Psychoanalysis

Devout believers are safeguarded in a high degree against the risk of certain neurotic illnesses; their acceptance of the universal neurosis spares them the task of constructing a personal one.

SIGMUND FREUD, The Future of an Illusion

At bottom God is nothing more than an exalted father.

SIGMUND FREUD, Totem and Taboo

In the long run, nothing can withstand reason and experience, and the contradiction religion offers to both is palpable.

SIGMUND FREUD, The Future of an Illusion

Where id is, there shall ego be.

SIGMUND FREUD, New Introductory Lectures on Psychoanalysis

The ego is not master in its own house.

SIGMUND FREUD, A Difficulty in the Path of Psycho-Analysis

The sexual life of adult women is a “dark continent” for psychology.

SIGMUND FREUD, The Question of Lay Analysis

When inspiration does not come to me, I go halfway to meet it.

SIGMUND FREUD, Great Quotes for Great Educators

Thinking is an experimental dealing with small quantities of energy, just as a general moves miniature figures over a map before setting his troops in action.

SIGMUND FREUD, New Introductory Lectures on Psychoanalysis

Words have a magical power. They can bring either the greatest happiness or deepest despair; they can transfer knowledge from teacher to student; words enable the orator to sway his audience and dictate its decisions. Words are capable of arousing the strongest emotions and prompting all men’s actions.

SIGMUND FREUD, The Educator’s Book of Quotes

Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.

SIGMUND FREUD, letter to Wilhelm Fliess, Oct. 15, 1897

He that has eyes to see and ears to hear may convince himself that no mortal can keep a secret. If his lips are silent, he chatters with his fingertips; betrayal oozes out of him at every pore.

SIGMUND FREUD, Dora: An Analysis of a Case of Hysteria

One feels inclined to say that the intention that man should be “happy” is not included in the plan of “Creation.”

SIGMUND FREUD, Civilization and Its Discontents

I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.

SIGMUND FREUD, Civilization and Its Discontents

America is the most grandiose experiment the world has seen … but, I am afraid, it is not going to be a success.

SIGMUND FREUD, Ronald W. Clark’s Freud: The Man and His Cause

If a man has been his mother’s undisputed darling he retains throughout life the triumphant feeling, the confidence in success, which not seldom brings actual success along with it.

SIGMUND FREUD, A Childhood Recollection

There is a psychological technique which makes it possible to interpret dreams, and … if that procedure is employed, every dream reveals itself as a psychical structure which has a meaning and which can be inserted at an assignable point in the mental activities of waking life.

SIGMUND FREUD, The Interpretation of Dreams

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.


A child in its greed for love does not enjoy having to share the affection of its parents with its brothers and sisters; and it notices that the whole of their affection is lavished upon it once more whenever it arouses their anxiety by falling ill. It has now discovered a means of enticing out its parents’ love and will make use of that means as soon as it has the necessary psychical material at its disposal for producing an illness.

SIGMUND FREUD, Dora: An Analysis of a Case of Hysteria

The first request of civilization … is that of justice.
