Freud The making of an illusion

Frederick C. Crews

Sound recording - 2017

Since the 1970s, Sigmund Freud's scientific reputation has been in an accelerating tailspin, but nonetheless the idea persists that some of his contributions were visionary discoveries of lasting value. Now, drawing on rarely consulted archives, Frederick Crews has assembled a great volume of evidence that reveals a surprising new Freud: a man who blundered tragicomically in his dealings with patients, who in fact never cured anyone, who promoted cocaine as a miracle drug capable of curing ...a wide range of diseases, and who advanced his career through falsifying case histories and betraying the mentors who had helped him to rise.
