In my former life as a professor of history, I liked to find turning points, historical points which changed civilization's direction. However much I disagreed with much of what Sigmund Freud believed I viewed his study of the importance of the unconscious mind as an important shift away from the rationalism, the heritage of "the Enlightenment." When on my last day in Vienna Claudia asked me if there was anything in the city I wanted to see, I confessed to her that I would have liked to have seen the Freud house. So with a guide at hand, we had just time enough before our rendezvous with the Prieler family –just time enough for me to visit Freud's home. That it was like visiting a home, not a museum was the most rewarding aspect of this experience. Most of it (despite what is shown here) was the rooms and furnishings of Freud's actual home. I found myself feeling strangely close to a man, many of whose ideas I did not like.
