Freud’s Wizard: Ernest Jones And The Transformation Of Psychoanalysis

Author: Brenda Maddox
The saturation of the English-speaking world with psychoanalytic concepts was due largely to one brilliant analyst, Ernest Jones. As Freud’s disciple, colleague, and biographer–and the man who rescued Freud from the Nazis–he led the international psychoanalytic movement, shifting its vortex from Vienna to London and spreading its influence to Toronto, New York, and Boston. While negotiating the ferocious politics of the movement, Jones also managed an imposing series of liaisons, including an heiress and her maid, analysands, and a “Druid Bride.” Unlike Freud, he never had to wonder, “What do women want?”
