3 There is a partial truth, or a distortion, in Gay's analysis. He is speaking of only one of the determinants of Freud's identity. On the issue of cultural influences on Freud, he is discussing Freud's conscious identity. An identity, of course, is based on positive and negative, conscious and unconscious psychological identifications. 6 But there was also a strong connection to western Europe, to France where Freud had received a fellowship to study in Paris with Jean-Martin Charcot, for whom he named his first son, Martin.
They lived on the margins or in the nooks and crannies of their respective nations. Each of them was in society and yet not in it, of it and yet not of it. "34 Although Deutscher did not avail himself of Freud's ideas in his historical research, to its detriment I think, he had an appreciative and accurate understanding of what Freud was about: He transcends the limitations of earlier psychological schools. The man whom he analyses is not a German, or an Englishman, a Russian, or a Jew—he is the universal man who is part of nature and part of society, the man whose desires and cravings, scruples and inhibitions, anxieties and predicaments are essentially the same no matter to what race, religion, or nation he belongs.
25 When he finally received a professorship, it was at the boundary of the German 38 Psychoanalysis, Social Structure, and Culture Reich, in territorially ambiguous and culturally marginal Alsace, at the University of Strasbourg. Simmel's sociological analysis reflected the jeopardy and insight, the sense of precarious insecurity and acute perception, of a person between cultures. It is due to Simmel, who in 1908 first defined "the stranger" as a distinctive phenotype subject to analysis, that we today have the culturally marginal outsider as a category of sociological understanding.
