Wilhelm Stekel

Datum narození: 18. březen 1868
Datum úmrtí: 25. červen 1940

Wilhelm Stekel byl rakouský psycholog a psychoanalytik, jeden z prvních spolupracovníků Sigmunda Freuda, jehož však Freud později zapudil .

Narodil se v Bukovině . Jeho první psychoanalýzou ovlivněné texty se týkaly tématu onanie. Nejznámějším se stal však svou prací o výkladu snů , kterou Freud citoval i v pozdějších vydáních vlastního Výkladu snů.

Posléze se věnoval též tématu psychicky podmíněné impotence a frigidity, kleptomanie, pyromanie či fetišismu .

Freud Stekela zapudil především za jeho názor, že "každá úzkost je v jádru úzkostí ze smrti".

Stekel spáchal roku 1940 sebevraždu, poté co uprchl z nacisty obsazeného Rakouska do Londýna a zřejmě se s faktem emigrace nevypořádal. Wikipedia

„There are people who perish when their eyes are opened.“

—  Wilhelm Stekel

Kontext: Truth is not always the best basis for happiness. There are certain lies which may constitute a far better and more secure foundation of happiness. There are people who perish when their eyes are opened.

„An intense, unyielding stubbornness hides beneath an apparent obedience“

—  Wilhelm Stekel

Sadism and Masochism : The Psychology of Hatred and Cruelty, Vol. 1 (1939), p. 46
Kontext: An intense, unyielding stubbornness hides beneath an apparent obedience (the patient brings a vast number of dreams; his associations become endless; he produces an inexhaustible number of recollections, which seem to him very important but are actually of little moment; or he goes off upon some byroad suggested by the analyst and leads the latter into a blind alley).
The child manifests the same reactions of defiance and obedience. The child, too, can hide his stubbornness behind an excessive docility (the parent's command: You must be industrious. Industry may become a mania so that the child neither goes out nor has time to sleep). Obedience is the giving up of the resistance; obstinacy the setting up of fresh resistances. This resistance is externally active. We have in recent years had sufficient opportunity to observe the law of resistance (the passive resistance). Activity and defiance show great differences. Defiance is the reaction against activity (aggression) of the environment. It may then manifest itself actively or passively and stands in the service of the defensive tendency of the ego. Every resistance reveals the ego (one's own) in conflict with another.

„The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of a mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one.“

—  Wilhelm Stekel

Cited by a character in J. D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye (1951) as a statement of Stekel, this has often been attributed to Salinger, and may actually be a paraphrase by him of a statement of the German writer Otto Ludwig (1813-1865) which Stekel himself quotes in his writings:
Das Höchste, wozu er sich erheben konnte, war, für etwas rühmlich zu sterben; jetzt erhebt er sich zu dem Größern, für etwas ruhmlos zu leben.
The highest he could raise himself to was to die gloriously for something; now he rises to something greater: to live humbly for something.
