Sigmund Freud, Ernest Jones

Edited by R. Andrew Paskauskas

ISBN 9780674154247

Publication date: 08/11/1995

Soon after their first meeting in 1908, Sigmund Freud’s future biographer, Ernest Jones, initiated a correspondence with the founder of psychoanalysis that would continue until Freud’s death in London in 1939. This volume makes available from British and American archives nearly seven hundred previously unpublished letters, postcards, and telegrams from the three-decade correspondence between Freud and his admiring younger colleague.

Praise

  • Freud and Jones put psychoanalysis on the map; a feat neither could have performed alone. While the present volume adds to our knowledge of psychoanalysis’s strange history, its real value lies elsewhere. It documents the steps whereby two starkly dissimilar but equally driven men joined forces and changed the world.

    —Liam Hudson, Times Literary Supplement
