Thinkers for our Time: Sigmund Freud

Wed 25 Nov 2015, 18:00 - 19:30

The British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AH

The work of Freud has shaped ideas, discussion and social discourse since the start of the twentieth century. This event revisited his key ideas and the influence they have had on society over the past hundred years.

This event was the first in a series re-examining the life and works of influential historical figures from across the humanities and social sciences, exploring the important and continuing influences they have on society and debating their place as key thinkers for our time.
