The father of psychoanalysis receives an excellent and authoritative treatment about his life and activities at this Web site, sponsored by the Sigmund Freud Museum that is located in Vienna. The site is thematically divided into a number of sections -- a timeline of Mr. Freud's life, prevalent themes throughout his work, information about the museum, and a collection of video and audio clips. The timeline is a good place to start, as it offers an overview of Freud's achievements from his birth in 1856 to his death in London in 1939. The Themes section of the site contains details about the dominant themes in his work, such as his work with his daughter, Anna Freud, and a selected bibliography. The most fascinating part of the site is the video and audio clips of Freud, particularly when one considers that he was notoriously camera-shy and generally avoided the media. Overall, the site will prove to be helpful to students and other persons hoping to learn more about the world's most recognizable psychoanalyst.
