Mental Healers: Mesmer, Eddy and Freud
By Stefan Zweig
An unusual and highly interesting biographical study of three major thinkers, including Sigmund Freud from the master of the genre, one of the twentieth century's most popular authors
Franz Mesmer, Mary Baker Eddy and Sigmund Freud—three influential thinkers who travelled very different paths in their search for the crucial link between mind and body. Zweig's brilliant study explores the lives and work of these important figures, raising provocative questions regarding the efficacy and even the morality of their methods. An insight into the minds of three key thinkers who shaped the philosophy of our age, Mental Healers is a wonderfully intriguing and thought-provoking biographical work from a renowned master of the genre.
