Freud vivant (15' 08)

Le son est celui d'une interview faite par la BBC, le 7 décembre 1938, à Maresfield Gardens, seul enregistrement existant de Freud, en anglais et en allemand (texte ci-dessous):

"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 new facts about the unconscious inside the life, the role of instinctual virtues and so on.

Out of these findings grew a new science,  psycho-analysis, a part of psychology as a new matter of treatment of the neurosis.

I had to pay heavily for this bit of good luck.

People did not believe in my facts and thought my theories unseaworthy.

Resistance was strong and unrelenting.

In the end I succeeded in acquiring plus points and winding up an International Psychoanalytic Association.

But the struggle is not yet over.

Im Alter von 82 Jahren verließ ich infolge der deutschen Invasion mein Heim in Wien und kam nach England, wo ich mein Leben in Freiheit zu enden hoffe.

My name is Sigmund Freud"
