La biografía definitiva de un personaje clave del siglo XX que revolucionó los angeles concept del ser humano.
Tras décadas de hagiografías y de condenas encendidas, resulta muy complicado saber hoy en día quién fue Sigmund Freud. Sin embargo, después de l. a. publicación de las últimas biografías de referencia se han abierto nuevos archivos a los investigadores y lo primary de l. a. correspondencia ya es accesible. Por tanto, este es un momento inmejorable para volver a un hombre y una obra sobre l. a. que quedaba mucho que decir.
El fundador del psicoanálisis period, para empezar, un vienés de l. a. Belle Epoque, súbdito del Imperio austrohúngaro, heredero de los angeles Ilustración alemana y judía. En cuanto al psicoanálisis en sí, es fruto de un esfuerzo colectivo, de un cenáculo en el cual Freud dio vía libre a su fascinación por lo irracional y las ciencias ocultas, convirtiendo a veces a sus amigos en enemigos, ejerciendo de Fausto pero también de Mefistófeles. Pensador moderno, pero conservador en política, nunca dejó de actuar de modo contradictorio con su obra, siempre en nombre de l. a. Razón y de las Luces.
Aquí está Freud en su tiempo, en su familia, rodeado de sus colecciones, con sus mujeres, sus hijos, sus perros; enfrentado al pesimismo ante el auge de los extremismos, lleno de dudas a los angeles hora de emprender su exilio londinense, donde morirá. Pero también le veremos en el nuestro, alimentando nuestras preguntas con sus propias dudas, sus fracasos y sus pasiones.
Ganadora de los premios literarios franceses Prix Decèmbre y Prix de Prix
y traducida a 25 idiomas.
La crítica ha dicho...
«Una biografía apasionante de un hombre indiscutiblemente ligado al siglo XX, con sus luces y sus sombras.»
Germán Cano, El Cultural
«Un retrato magnífico, épico, íntimo y crítico, del fundador del psicoanálisis.»
