Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) was the founder of the psychoanalytic school of psychology.  One of the most influential figures of twentieth century thought, Freud won followers and made enemies with his bold theories of the unconscious and the importance of sexual impulses, as well as the tripartite structure of id, ego, and superego.
