The History of the Psychoanalytic Movement (German: Zur Geschichte der psychoanalytischen Bewegung) is a work published by Sigmund Freud in 1914.


It is intended primarily as a polemic against the competing theories in psychotherapy which opposed his psychoanalysis, for example Alfred Adler's individual psychology and Carl Jung's analytical psychology. Adler and Jung had previously been followers of Freud but objected to his emphasis on sexual matters. His main criticism of them is their insistence on still calling themselves psychoanalysts.
