He don’t chose to do just any career his choices were very limited because he was Jewish. In the year 1881 he got his medical degree from the University of Vienna, the very next year after his graduation he got engaged and married. From this marriage he had six children; out of the six children that he had only one (the youngest name Anna) became a distinguished psychoanalyst following her father. Sigmund started to treat various psychological disorders; he became more of a scientist than a doctor. He was really influenced by the work of his friend and by Viennese colleague, Josef Breuer and their discoveries.
Both discovered that hypnosis removed neurotic symptons. The case of patient Anna O. became famous. By applying this method, Freud came to understand the correlation between emotional disorders and the formation of mental (at that time mainly hysterical) symptoms. Through hypnosis as a method of "mental catharsis" the patient recalls and relives repressed traumatic situations and is eventually relieved and healed. Freud was now convinced that functional diseases had a mental cause.
In regard to Macbeth, I believe that Macbeth and Lady Macbeth portray this spiral into psychosis as a result of their frustration. We can prove this by first looking at the ideologies of Freud, and then relating it to the downfall of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Freud was both a medical doctor and a philosopher. As a doctor, he was interested in charting how the human mind affected the body. He focused on forms of mental illness, such as neurosis and hysteria, and he endeavored to find effective ways of treating these disorders.
Sigmund Freud: Founding Father of Psychoanalysis Kaylee R. McCracken Jenks High School Abstract Sigmund Freud is one of the founding fathers of psychology, specifically psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis is a clinical method for helping create the dialogue between a patient and the psychoanalyst. Freud has changed the way we think of human behavior and the mind. Freud came up with three main theories, the Id, Ego and Superego. Sigmund Freud: Founding Father of Psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud was born on May 6th, 1856 and died September 23rd, 1939.
Sigmund Freud was born on May 6, 1856 in Freiberg, Moravia. His father, Jacob Freud who was a skilled wool merchant married Amalia Freud who is Sigmund’s mother. Amalia was twenty years younger when she and Jacob married. Sigmund was the first child of eight children, but Jacob his father had two children in his first marriage. Sigmund’s father was born into a Jewish family and left home to get away from the normal Jewish tradition.
Freud used to underline how human beings have created for themselves an interior metaphorical discourse to express extremely violent issues such as love, hate, life, death, sexuality...21 Analytical cure sight-reads this metaphorical language. Patients have the tendency to try and cure themselves alone but therapy helps substract the patient to his own influence, free his from his own desease. Therapy requires the participation of two actors and recovery cannot take place if the therapist does not understand his patient's psychology and resistance to healing.22 Freud focused on studying the opposition to healing and resistance to treatment when increasing his knowledge about unconscious forces. The therapist defines healing as the goal creating the patient's resistances. Thoses resistances to therapy can be explained as follows : the fact of being cured corresponds to a change of state.
Josef Breuer was both a physician and a physiologist (www.nndb.com) and they often comparred thoughts on cases together. One in particular that had a lasting effect on Freud was about a patient named Anna O and she suffered from hysteria (now called conversion disorder) where she had temproary paralysis and anesthesia and nervous cough (www.psychology.about.com). Breuer discovered that if he could hypnotize her then she would be able to speak of things that she could not in her conscious state. Afterward her symptoms where relieved and this became known as the "talking cure" (www.pbs.org). Later he went to Paris to study under Jean Martin-Charcot a well known neurologist in Europe at the time (www.pbs.org).
In modern times humans have become susceptible to psychological illnesses. Nietzsche and Freud both give different explanations as to where the illnesses originate from. Freud blames our libido and its erotic appetite that goes against current standards for the illness. While Nietzsche blames the slave revolt of morality for stopping us from acting out on our animal impulse. Both illnesses are quite similar since they appear to have the same origin as one another.
After making several conclusions about the brain's medulla, Freud was appointed lecturer in neuropathology. At this same time in Freud's career, he developed an interest in the medical uses and benefits of cocaine(Britannica, 582). Even though some beneficial results were found in some forms of eye surgery, cocaine use was generally denied by the surgeons of his time. This interest in the narcotic hurt Freud's medical reputation for a time. This episode in Freud's life has been looked at as an example of his "willingness to attempt bold solutions to relieve human suffering(Wittels,98)."
