According to the Washington Post, Sophie Freud died at her home in the US state of Massachusetts at the age of 93.
Sophie is the eldest son of Sigmund Freud and the last granddaughter of the famous psychologist who revolutionized the popular notion of the human mind through the School of Psychoanalysis in the last century.
Freud came up with theories of the conflict between the so-called “ego” and the “super-ego” in the human psyche, and he also focused on factors such as dreams in expressing the inner self.
Freud’s influence extended to other schools of psychology, and he made a significant mark in the field of literature with his many fictional works.
The late Sophie, who came to the United States as a refugee during World War II, studied social work at American universities for decades.
Sophie Freud has focused on providing psychological support through many charitable and humanitarian efforts, and is keen to discuss and explore what her grandfather brought up in previous reports because she is an independent researcher with her own opinion.
In 2002, Sophie gave an example of how she expressed great distrust of her grandfather Freud’s principles, and the girl became jealous of the boy because he had a genitals and thought he was superior to her.
The late woman went so far as to describe her grandfather’s theory of this jealousy as “meaningless” and compared his words to the words of a three-year-old child.
