Freud the Physician: Early Scientific Discoveries

30 April 2015 to 18 June 2015

An exhibition exploring and celebrating the pre-psychoanalytical career of Sigmund Freud.

Long before Freud coined the term psychoanalysis in 1896 and developed a profound new body of psychological theory and technique, he had distinguished himself as a young scientific researcher and physician. Starting in 1876, Freud made numerous contributions to various branches of medicine and biology, including, physiology, anatomy, histology, anaesthetics, paediatrics, and neurology.

The exhibition includes a display of rare books, unpublished letters, certificates, and journals from the collections of the RSM Library and the Freud Museum.

Organised jointly by the Royal Society of Medicine and Freud Museum London.
