Journal of the American Academy of Psychoanalysis. XIX, 1991: Freud and the Mighty Warrior. S. L. Warner. Pp. 282-293.

Lee Grossman

In this biographical speculation, Warner describes the development of an aspect of Freud's character which he calls the "mighty warrior." He describes this as beginning with Freud's relationship with his nephew, who was one year older. Throughout his life Freud identified with heroes, from the military realm in childhood, to Goethe, Shakespeare, and finally Moses. Warner explains this development as a "reaction formation" against his father, about whose stature he felt disillusioned, and an identification with the aggressor with respect to his mother's demands for achievement.
