Who's Afraid of Wilhelm Reich? [electronic resource]: A 21st-Century Reappraisal

Summary
The Austrian-born psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich, whose work varied from profound to radically unconventional, died in an American prison in 1957. This program documents his life and the progressively defiant actions and ideas that brought it to such an ignominious end. Interviews with prominent members of Germany's medical and psychoanalytic community help to clarify Reich's initially productive collaboration with Sigmund Freud-specifically, how Freud's concept of the libido influenced Reich's theories concerning what he called "orgone," or life energy. The wide array of scientific conclusions that Reich reached before and after immigrating to the U.S., his interactions with Albert Einstein, and detailed recollections from his daughters Eva and Lore, are also featured.
