In 1905, at the age of 21, Otto Rank presented Freud with a short manuscript on the artist, a study that so impressed Freud he invited Rank to become Entwicklungsziele der Psychoanalyse PDF of the emerging Vienna Psychoanalytic Society. Rank thus became the first paid member of the psychoanalytic movement, and Freud’s „right-hand man“ for almost 20 years.
Författare: Sándor Rank.
Mit diesem Text formulierten Rank und Ferenczi eine Prinzipiendiskussion, anders gesagt einen Bruch mit der "Vater" der Psychoanalyse Sigmund Freud.
Encouraged and supported by Freud, Rank completed the „Gymnasium“ or college-preparatory high school, attended the University of Vienna, and was awarded his PhD in philosophy in 1912. His thesis, on the Lohengrin Saga, was published in 1911, the first Freudian doctoral dissertation to be published as a book. Rank was one of Freud’s six collaborators brought together in a secret „committee“ or „ring“ to defend the psychoanalytic mainstream as disputes with Adler and Jung developed. But there was no such phase in Freud’s theories.
After some hesitation, Freud distanced himself from The Trauma of Birth, signalling to other members of his inner circle that Rank was perilously close to anti-Oedipal heresy. All emotional experience by human beings was being reduced by analysis to a derivative, no matter how disguised, of libido. Emotion is the cause of neurotic disorder. Increases in emotion, according to Freud, are unpleasurable. Left to right, seated: Sigmund Freud, Sándor Ferenczi, and Hanns Sachs. Standing: Otto Rank, Karl Abraham, Max Eitingon, and Ernest Jones.
