Freud, Lipps and Nietzsche

David L Smith

pp. 16-19

Freud explicitly acknowledged the impact of several philosophical thinkers upon his work.17 One of the main philosophical influences on the development of Freud's psychoanalytical ideas was Theodor Lipps, an early exponent of phenomenology. In the present chapter I will briefly evaluate Lipps' influence on Freud and then go on to discuss critically the claim made by a number of historians of depth psychology that Nietzsche had a direct and insufficiently acknowledged impact on Freud's intellectual development.
