"What is This Professor Freud Like?": A Diary of an Analysis with Historical Comments
The discovery of the diary marks a small sensation for the history of social science. Three factors make the document unique: first, it records not a training analysis, but the analysis of an actual patient, second, the analysis took place before Freud fell ill with cancer, and third, the analysand obviously noted down what was said in the practice word by word. As Ernst Falzeder notes,“no other account published to date meets all three of these conditions”.
