How he shaped history
"Sigmund Freud explored the human mind more thoroughly than any other who became before him. His contributions to psychology are vast. Freud was one of the most influential people of the twentieth century and his enduring legacy has influenced not only psychology, but art, literature and even the way people bring up their children. Freud’s lexicon has become embedded within the vocabulary of western society. Words he introduced through his theories are now used by everyday people, such as anal (personality), libido, denial, repression, cathartic, Freudian slip, and neurotic."
He was the considered the father of psychoanalysis. These are some the things he is most known for: Theory of Psycho-sexual Development, The Id, Ego, and Superego, Dream interpretation, Free association. his work supported the belief that not all mental illnesses have causes that are physiological and he offered evidence that cultural differences have an impact on behavior as well as psychology.
His work contributed to societies understanding of personality, clinical psychology, human development and abnormal psychology. He was awarded the Goethe Prize 1930 for his contributions to psychology and to German literary culture. Which was his highest his most pristine award in his life span.
