Josef Breuer (1842–1925) was an Austrian physician who was a mentor to Freud in his early career, and whose own work with hysterical patients helped lay the groundwork for some of Freud’s discoveries about the unconscious – for instance, that neuroses could arise from unconscious processes and that neurotic symptoms could disappear when their basis in unconsciously remembered events became part of the conscious mind. Their collaborative work Studies in Hysteria (1895) is one of the founding texts of psychoanalysis and introduced the notion of the ‘talking cure’.
