Sigmund Freud—May 6, 1936

May 6th, 1936, marks the 80th birthday of Sigmund Freud.

It has been the lot of very few to live to see their own creative work take root and grow into a comprehensive system of empirical thought that revolutionized man's attitude towards many fundamental problems of nature and human life. Freud is one of these few exceptions. Those who joined him as collaborators and disciples note this day with reverence and they contemplate with admiration the long and arduous road which Freud broke through and traversed so valiantly for over half a century.

Ten years ago the scientific world celebrated his 70th birthday. These ten years witnessed continued and untiring efforts of Freud's intellectual activity. The following works from his pen were published since 1926: Inhibitions, Symptoms and Anxiety (1926); The Problem of Lay-Analysis (1926); Postscript to "The Problem of Lay-Analysis" (1927); Humour (1927); Fetishism (1927); Postscript to the "Moses" of Michelangelo (1927); The Future of an Illusion (1927); A Religious Experience (1928); Dostoyevsky and Parricide (1928); Civilization and its Discontents (1930); Libidinal Types (1931); Concerning the Sexuality of Woman (1931); The Acquisition of Fire (1932); New Series of the Introductory Lectures to Psychoanalysis (1932); Why War? (1932); The Fineness of Parapraxia (1935).

The German edition of Freud's works now comprises twelve large volumes. A complete English edition is still wanting.
