HISTORY OF IDEAS:Sigmund Freud: Analysis of a Mind

This documentary reviews the career and personal life of the founder of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud.

In 1923, Freud ventured so far as to develop a model of the human mind, consisting of three elements — the ego, the id, and the superego. During his creatively productive life, Freud published over twenty volumes of theory and clinical studies in which he coined concepts and terms, including libido, subconscious and inferiority complex, that permeated Western culture.
