    "Freud was born too soon-- fifty years too soon"
    with Fred Sander, M.D.

    In this thought experiment, Dr. Sander imagines that Freud was born in 1906, fifty years after his actual birth. With this shift in Freud’s birth, Sander suggests a different trajectory for psychoanalysis than the one we are currently linked to. Unlike the revolutions Copernicus and Darwin initiated the psychoanalytic revolution, though also the product of one man, was shaped by the era of its creation. Scientific and cultural changes in the first half of the 20th Century might have altered the unfolding of the discovery of the unconscious mind thus averting its current state of crisis.
