Abstract:

"As a young scientist, Sigmund Freud is fascinated by the brain, but unable to earn enough money to marry the woman he loves, he abandons research for a career in medicine. An aspiring neurologist, Freud travels to Paris, where doctors are trying to understand the mental illness known as "hysteria." Here, he witnesses the seemingly miraculous treatment of the illness with hypnosis, which sometimes offers temporary relief. His interest piqued, Freud commits himself to finding the cause of hysteria and its cure. He returns to Vienna and begins medical practice treating nervous disorders. To cure his patients, he tries, then abandons, hypnotism, inventing instead his own unusual treatment based on "free association" and interpreting dreams. As he struggles to formulate his theories, Freud is tormented by migraine headaches, heart palpitations, and depression. To his horror, he comes to believe that hysteria is caused by childhood sexual abuse, but his colleagues roundly reject his theory. Freud, however, is convinced that he has found the key to unlocking the secrets of the mind."--Container.
