Sample text

There is something odd about the incongruity between one’s own and other people’s estimation of one’s intellectual work. Look at this book on the diplegias, . . It has been tremendously successful. . And of the really good things, such as the Aphasia . . I can expect nothing better than a respectable failure. It confounds one and makes one somewhat bitter. (Freud 1985, 74, my italics) Frau Emmy von N. had convinced Freud – as Anna O. had convinced Breuer – that she had to talk in her own way, spontaneously without Freud’s interruptions because some stories in her mind called for free expression.

Freud presented Breuer’s case in 1909 as part of the Five Lectures on PsychoAnalysis at Clark University in Massachusetts. He said emphatically about Breuer: “Never before had anyone removed a hysterical symptom by such a method or had thus gained so deep an insight into its causation” (Freud 1910, 13). Freud described how the symptoms originated in emotional experiences, ‘psychical traumas’ and that they were “. . ‘determined’ by the scenes of whose recollection they represented residues” . .
