What Was Freud Thinking? A Short Historical Introduction to Freud's Theories and Therapies, by Barry Silverstein, is a unique introduction to Freud that offers a guided tour of Freud's original writings, placing his work in a historical context. Because Freud's work emerged in the context of the medical, scientific, intellectual, and political culture of late nineteenth century Vienna, and because he wrote in the German language of his time, any proper account of Freud's development of psychoanalysis must try to see the development of his work in the historical-cultural context in which it was created, and attempt to assess the meaning that Freud's theoretical constructs and clinical experiments had for him at the time of their creation.
