“The intellectual, political, and medical climate of the time was also an important factor in his development: he witnessed the fall of the Austro-Hungarian Empire; he knew Freud, Adler, Reik, Buber, Werfel, Kokoschka and many other intellectuals in post-war Vienna;
he was a contemporary of the first Viennese psychoanalytical school and the expressionist movement, part of both , and yet out of the mainstream of any school or group.
I hope that this biography will reveal the similarities and the differences between Moreno and his contemporaries."
