THE LONG-AWAITED exhibit, "Sigmund Freud: Conflict and Culture," is now on view at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, and in an abbreviated version at the Library's Web site, http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/freud.

The show aims to trace Freud's impact on the 20th century, presenting a historical account of the evolution of Freud's theories on how the mind works, an overview of his key concepts, and the appropriation of these ideas by popular culture, according to its curator, Michael S. Roth, associate director of the Getty Research Institute for the History of Art and the Humanities, in Los Angeles.
