Quotes by Sigmund Freud
Sigmund Freud was a famous psychologist. Actually, he is generally considered the father of modern psychology. Nonetheless, much of his experiments are criticized as flawed or outdated. This is because many of his childhood development psychology was based upon people in mental health issues. The argument states that someone with mental problems does not think or behave the same and thus makes many of his experiments invalid. However, if nothing else, psychologists today can thank him for breaking through and leading them on the correct path of psycho-analysis. Read some great Sigmund Freud quotes below.
