Another historic voice recording. The Austrian psychiatrist who founded the psychoanalytic school of psychology, Sigmund Freud (May 6, 1856 - September 23, 1939) tells about his achievements.

This was recorded as his home recording, and later broadcasted as a part of the BBC broadcast "Celebrities on Radio", which was broadcasted on December 27th, 1938.

Freud was very ill at this time - he was suffering from throat cancer. Because of this, he talks very slowly in a very indistinct accent. Freud died nine month later after this broadcast.


Freud Says;

I started my professional activity as a neurologist trying to bring relief to my neurotic patients.

Under the influence of an older friend and by my own efforts, I discovered some important and new facts about the unconscious in psychic life, the role of instinctual urges and so on.

Out of these findings grew a new science, Psycho-Analysis, a part of psychology and a new method of treatment of the neuroses.

I had to pay heavily for this bit of good luck. People did not believe in my facts and thought my theories unsavoury.

Resistance was strong and unrelenting. In the end I suceeded in acquiring pupils and building up an International Psycho-Analytic Association. But this struggle is not yet over. Sigmund Freud.
