A dream of undying fame : how Freud betrayed his mentor and invented psychoanalysis by Louis Breger( )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late 1870s, a young Sigmund Freud met an established physician named Josef Breuer in Vienna. Breuer quickly became Freud's mentor and trusted friend, providing the young doctor with financial support, patient referrals, and new ideas on the inner workings of the mind. His most valuable gift was the description of his treatment of Bertha Pappenheim -- later known as Anna O. -- a young female "hysteric" who would become the first case in Freud and Breuer's joint publication, Studies on Hysteria. This classic work has revolutionized the way we understand unconscious motivation, neurotic symptoms, childhood, trauma, the "talking cure," and more. But it was also a turning point in Breuer and Freud's partnership, as Freud's soaring aspirations started to come between the two pioneers of psychoanalysis. In A Dream of Undying Fame, renowned psychologist Louis Breger narrates the fascinating story behind the creation of Studies and reveals how Freud minimized Breuer's role in the book and in his life. A brilliant but flawed individual, Freud let no one stand in the way of his drive to become a world-famous scientist, and his personal history shaped his need to achieve professional recognition. Illustrating the importance of personality and social context behind an intellectual breakthrough, A Dream of Undying Fame provides an in-depth look at a field that reshaped our understanding of what it means to be human. - Jacket flap
From instinct to identity: the development of personality by Louis Breger( Book )

19 editions published between 1974 and 2017 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Instinct to Identity begins an account of personality development by tracing the legacy of the human species from its primate heritage to its present form. Findings from ethology, primate studies, linguistics, and other sources are used to construct an account of the unique features of man. The evolution of early cultures is shown through use of anthropological work. The ideas of Sigmund Freud, particularly as modifi ed by Erik Erikson, are presented together with the theories and findings of Jean Piaget and his collaborators in a series of chapters that follow the person from infancy to adolescence. Other chapters examine play, dreams, and fantasy; anxiety and its effects on the development of self; moral development; and identity. The emphasis throughout is on the growth of self, and its impact on social norms. The author blends together theories and findings from psychoanalysis, psychology, ethology, humanistic psychology, and child development, develops a model of human motivation in which the basic emotional systems of love, anxiety, aggression, curiosity and intelligence are traced from their primate background through the human life cycle. He brings together classic ideas on guilt and conscience with research on moral reasoning and ego development, and clarifies difficult ideas in a clear, direct prose style. This classic volume, now available in paperback with a new introduction by the author, will fi nd a new audience among anthropologists as well as psychologists interested in the evolution of human behavior."--Provided by publisher

Dostoevsky : the author as psychoanalyst by Louis Breger( Book )

22 editions published between 1989 and 2017 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andrï Gide once said that Feodor Dostoevsky "lost himself in the characters of his books, and, for this reason, it is in them that he can be found again." In Dostoevsky: The Author as Psychoanalyst, Louis Breger approaches Dostoevsky psychoanalytically, not as a "patient" to be analyzed, but as a fellow psychoanalyst, someone whose life and fiction are intertwined in the process of literary self-exploration. Raskolnikov's dream of the suffering horse in Crime and Punishment has become one of the best known in all literature, its rich imagery expressing meaning on many levels. Using this as a starting point, Breger goes on to offer a detailed analysis of the novel, situating it at the pivotal point in Dostoevsky's life between the death of his first wife and his second marriage. Using insights from his psychological training, Breger also explores other works by Dostoevsky, among them his early novel, The Double, which Breger relates to the nervous breakdown that Dostoevsky suffered in his twenties, as well as Notes from Underground, The Possessed, The Idiot, The Brothers Karamazov, and so forth. Additionally, details from Dostoevsky's own life--his compulsive gambling, his epilepsy, his philosophical, political, religious, and mystical beliefs, and the interpretations of them found in existing biographies--are analyzed in detail. --Publisher description

Spacecraft formation flying : dynamics, control and navigation by K. Terry Alfriend( )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spacecraft formation flying (SFF) is of huge importance to the aerospace and space community. Not the stuff of science-fiction, SFF involves flying multiple small satellites together, to deliver benefits which far outweigh a single larger craft or space station. The first autonomous formation flying earth science mission was in 196 and NASA now has 35 SFF mission sets. By networking several smaller and cheaper craft, scientists can make simultaneous measurements that enable higher resolution astronomical imagery, provide robust and fault-tolerant spacecraft system architectures, and enable com
Freud : el genio y sus sombras /cLouis Breger ; traducción Mercáe Diago y Abel Debritto by Louis Breger( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in Spanish and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sigmund Freud, padre del psicoanálisis, se sumergió en las oscuras regiones de la psique humana -también en la suya- para revelar la verdad acerca de los inconsciente, la sexualidad y la neurosis. O al menos eso cuenta la leyenda. En esta inteligente biografía, Louis Breger nos presenta un retrato nuevo y sorprendente de una de las grandes figuras del siglo XX, y nos muestra cómo Freud oscureció sistemáticamente la verdad referida a su vida para crear una imagen heroica de sí mismo en la que mezcló los hechos con la fantasía. El penetrante retrato de Breger muestra a UN Freud como un hombre sumido en colosales contradicciones, un ser cuya asombrosa originalidad coexistía con una rígida adhesión a un doma, una psicoanalista que pasó su vida inmerso en los detalles más íntimos de la existencia de otros y que, sin embargo, se mantuvo ensimismado y curiosamente alejado de los demás, un hombre de percepciones profundas que, por otra parte, no logró ver en toda su magnitud el efecto que provocaba en sus semejantes. Decidido a desmitificar a Freud, Breger penetra en las sombras que envuelven una de las mentes más brillantes del siglo XX
