Breger iyi bir iş çıkarmış. Freud'ü tüm yönleriyle yansıtmayı başarmış, temaların altını çizmiş vs, kendisi de psikanalist olduğundan yorumları da klasik biyografi yazarlarından biraz daha farklı oluyor haliyle. Tek eleştireceğim nokta Breger'in Freud 'a olan nefretinin kitabın içine işlemesi. Açıkçası Freud'u severim, hayranlık duyduğum insanlardan biridir ama tapınacak kadar da müridi değilim; buna rağmen Breger'in kimi cümleleri beni çok rahatsız etti. Yine de Dostoyevski kitabını okumak iste ...more

Irvin Yalom'u (Nietszche Ağladığında) ve Rilke'yi okumam; hemen öncesinde ise tarih okuyup belgeseller izlememle başladı bu ilgi..
Bu koskoca ve ağır gramajlı kitabın pek de objektif yazılmamış olduğunu söyleyerek başlamam doğru mu bilmiyorum ama nihayetinde insan elinden çıkmış hangi kitap hangi yazı hangi film objektif olabilir ki? Önemli olan hayatta eleştirel ve şüpheci bakış açısından sapmamak.. Her görünene inanmamak..

Although this book took me a painfully long time to read, I really liked it and I found it very interesting. When I picked it up from the library, I didn't think I would actually read through the whole book. I only borrowed it so that I could use it for my revolutionary research paper. But as I learned more about Freud from Internet sources and certain pages of the book (that I found using the index), I really got interested and decided to read the book--cover to cover.

Recommends it for: the curious
This an excellent account of Freud and his life. it is well documented and reads nearly like a novel. I don't agree with all of Breger's conclusions and analysis of Freud's motives; but that doesn't detract from my liking of the work. it is an authoritative and informative reconning.
My biggest complaint is Bregen's failure to diagnose. (Bregen is a prominent Professor and Psychoanalysist.) Freud, it appears to me, had a classic Narcissitic Personality Disorder. To not engage in the discussion of

An interesting look at an interesting life. This book was insightful and a fairly good read. It is exceptionally long and extremely thorough and looks at every single detail of Freud's life. It was a little to heavy for me but nonetheless enjoyable.

Freud'un hayatında yönelik çok kapsamlı, üzerine çalışılmış bir biyografi. Zaman zaman bilişsel psikolojiye biraz fazla meyletse de psikanalizin tarihine ilgi duyanlar için şiddetle önerilir.
