This book reconsiders standard narratives regarding Austrian émigrés and exiles to Britain by addressing the seminal role of Sigmund Freud and his writings, and the critical part played by his contemporaries, in the construction of a method promoting humanized relations between individual and society and subjectivity and culture. This anthology presents groundbreaking examples of the manners in which well-known personalities including psychoanalysts Anna Freud and Ernst Kris, sociologist Marie Jahoda, authors Stefan Zweig and Hilde Spiel, film director Berthold Viertel, architect Ernst Freud, and artist Oskar Kokoschka, achieved a greater impact, and contributed to the broadening of British and global cultures, through constructing a psychologically effective language and activating their émigré networks. They advanced a visionary Viennese tradition through political and social engagements and through promoting humanistic perspectives in their scientific, educational and artistic works.

This collection of essays presents new perspectives on Freud’s role in the lives of Austrian émigrés and exiles in Britain from the 1930s to the 1970s. It explores the creative ways in which authors, art historians, psychoanalysts, sociologists and artists accessed Freudian thinking and fashioned their own Freudian languages. Above all, the book seeks to examine the influence of Freud on the scientific and creative writing of émigrés and exiles, as well as on their professional positioning in British society. It probes the collective attempt to fashion an imagined ‘Viennese community’, represented through the promotion of a humanised language and a progressive social engagement. Moving beyond narrow understandings of psychoanalysis either as therapy or intellectual paradigm, the volume explores its broader cultural roles. By exploring psychoanalysis in terms of its specific cultural relationship with Austria, as well as Britain, the chapters show how psychoanalysis also created connections between the two countries in the immediate postwar period.
