In the last part of the twentieth century, a key shift took place in the venues in which psychoanalytic thinking functioned among the intellectual and well-educated groups in the United States. The subject of American intellectual history of the middle and late twentieth century consisted of much more than politics. In the three decades after 1909, psychoanalysis and “the new psychology” became fashionable in parts of medicine and in the highbrow media in the United States. Then, in the 1930s, and especially just as World War II neared, the United States moved to center stage in the formal psychoanalytic movement, and also in both intellectual and popular psychoanalytic discourse. The story of Sigmund Freud and American culture becomes entirely interlaced with almost all of the major intellectual and cultural changes that occurred from the 1920s and 1930s to the 1970s and 1980s and after.
