Hannes Leidinger Christian Rapp Birgit Mosser-Schuöcker - Freud – Adler – Frankl
The Viennese World of Psychological Research
The life and work of Freud, Adler and Frankl, the founders of world-renowned schools of psychotherapy, grounded in the historical context of their age.
Sigmund Freud, Alfred Adler, Viktor Frankl – giants of Viennese intellectual life – revolutionised the science of psychological research within a strikingly short span of time. They became the founding fathers of theories and methods of treatment that are still highly influential even today: psychoanalysis, individual psychology and logotherapy. What were their social environments, how were they shaped by their family backgrounds, and what did their professional networks look like? The authors offer a gripping account of a hundred and fifty years of cultural and scientific history, shedding light on the complex relationships between these three figures.
