Happy Birthday Sigmund Freud!
On this day in 1856, Sigismund Schlomo Freud was born in Příbor, then known as Freiberg, part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The first of eight children, Freud grew up in Vienna where he was to spend the majority of his life. His work would go on to shape 20th century thought like few other figures, influencing art, literature, science, and philosophy. Today we celebrate Freud’s 165th birthday!
