How did Freudian jargon become so widespread? The bearded Viennese polymath who pioneered psychoanalysis. The Freud that academics never tire of arguing about. The one you might allude to when you mention dreams, or verbal slips, or someone fancying their mum.
There was a sister too, born one year after Reich, but she died in infancy.
Shortly after his birth the family moved to Jujinetza village in Bukovinawhere his father ran a cattle farm leased by his mother's uncle, Josef Blum. Reich and his brother, Robert, were brought up to speak only German, were punished for using Yiddish expressions and forbidden from playing with the local Yiddish-speaking children.
He maintained that his first sexual experience was at the age of four when he tried to have sex with the family maid with whom he shared a bedthat he would regularly watch the farm animals have sex, that he used a whip handle sexually on the horses while masturbating, and that he had almost daily sexual intercourse from the age of 11 with another of the servants.
He wrote of regular visits to brothels, the first when he was 15, and said he was visiting them daily from the age of around He also developed sexual fantasies about his mother, writing when he was 22 that he masturbated while thinking about her.
He briefly thought of forcing her to have sex with him, on pain of threatening to tell his father. In the end, he did tell his father, and after a protracted period of beatings, his mother committed suicide infor which Reich blamed himself. It was during this period that a skin condition appeared, diagnosed as psoriasisthat plagued him for the rest of his life, leading several commentators to remark on his ruddy complexion.
He visited brothels every day and wrote in his diary of his disgust for the women. The Russians invaded Bukovina that summer and the Reich brothers fled, losing everything.
Reich wrote in his diary: Of a well-to-do past, nothing was left. When the war ended he headed for Vienna, enrolling in law at the University of Viennabut found it dull and switched to medicine after the first semester.
He arrived with nothing in a city with little to offer; the overthrow of the Austria-Hungarian empire a few weeks earlier had left the newly formed Republic of German-Austria in the grip of famine. Reich lived on soup, oats and dried fruit from the university canteen, and shared an unheated room with his brother and another undergraduate, wearing his coat and gloves indoors to stave off the cold.
He fell in love with another medical student, Lia Laszky, with whom he was dissecting a corpse, but it was largely unrequited. The question, "What is Life? It became clear that the mechanistic concept of life, which dominated our study of medicine at the time, was unsatisfactory There was no denying the principle of creative power governing life; only it was not satisfactory as long as it was not tangible, as long as it could not be described or practically handled.
For, rightly, this was considered the supreme goal of natural science. It seems they left a strong impression on each other. Freud allowed him to start meeting with analytic patients in September that year, although Reich was just 22 years old and still an undergraduate, which gave him a small income.
He was accepted as a guest member of the Vienna Psychoanalytic Associationbecoming a regular member in Octoberand began his own analysis with Isidor Sadger. He lived and worked out of an apartment on Berggasse 7, the street on which Freud lived at no.
Freud had warned analysts not to involve themselves with their patients, but in the early days of psychoanalysis the warnings went unheeded.Words and phrases popularised by Sigmund Freud are ingrained in everyday language - how did Freudian jargon become so widespread?
