Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association. VIII, 1960: Schreber's Father. William G. Niederland. Pp. 492-499.

The father of Senatspräsident Daniel Paul Schreber was a prominent orthopedic physician, writer, educator, and reformer whose reputation was national and formidable in his son's lifetime. Doctor Daniel Gottlieb Schreber enjoyed the veneration and cultist obedience of many who saw in him the acme of masculine beauty and power, a reformer of missionary zeal, and an authority on hygiene and child-rearing. He advocated in his many books, and tested on his children, a rigid and harsh regimen beginning in infancy by which all traces of independence, rebellion, and bad habits like masturbation were to be radically and forever crushed until, by age five or six, a state of complete submissiveness could be achieved. Recently discovered medical reports from the asylum where his son was long hospitalized reveal, not surprisingly, that the zealot was also a very sick man, 'suffering from compulsive manifestations with murderous impulses'. Comparison of the writings of Doctor Schreber and the Memoirs of his son, whom Freud made famous, reveal interesting stylistic similarities and provocative dynamic correlations between the fanatical dicta of the father and the psychotic delusions of the son.
