Josef Breuer

a.k.a. Joseph Breuer

Author Code: GJBR

Born: Jan. 15, 1842 - Vienna, Austria

Died: Jun. 20, 1925 - Vienna, Austria

Educated at the Akademische Gymnasium and the University of Vienna, where he studied medicine, Breuer received his MD in 1867. He began his career as an internist assistant at the University. In 1868, collaborating with Ewald Hering, he published his first important scientific paper in which they demonstrated the reflex nature of respiration; still known today as the Hering-Breuer reflex. In 1871, Breuer entered private practice, but continued his scientific research, publishing over twenty papers on physiology over the next forty years; many of them of a ground-breaking nature. He joined the University faculty in 1875, but continued his private practice. In 1880, one of his patients, 'Anna O.', developed severe mental illness and Breuer discovered that he could ease her symptoms with hypnosis and dialogue, eventually leading to her cure. Later, he met Sigmund Freud and taught him his methods. Together, they developed this new technique of psychotherapy and eventually collaborated on two important papers. The first, On the Psychical Mechanism of Hysterical Phenomena (1893, laid the groundwork for the second, Studies in Hysteria (1895), which marked the beginning of psychoanalytic theory. In 1894, Breuer was elected to the Viennese Academy of Science. Breuer had five children and his daughter Dora committed suicide rather than submit to deportation by the Nazis. Other important works by Breuer include Zwei Falle von Hydrophobie (1868), Uber Bogengange des Labyrinths (1873), Uber Brommastitis (1894), Uber Galvanotropismus bei Fischen (1902) and his autobiography, Curriculum Vitae (1923).
