I launch my Freud lectures today. Let me offer one lovely tidbit as a preview. By common agreement, Freud's most important book is The Interpretation of Dreams, first published in 1900. My copy of the translation by an important analyst, A. A. Brill, dates from 1913. I got it secondhand for two bucks. Today we tend to think of Freud as old news, outdated, a relic, and nobody, but nobody, is shocked by his theories of infant sexuality. But it was not always thus. Pasted to the flyleaf of my copy is the following notice:
As I observed in one of my books, in politics I am an anarchist, in religion I am an atheist, and in economics I am a Marxist. I am also, rather more importantly, a husband, a father, a grandfather, and a violist.
