Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

Hans Jürgen Eysenck (March 4, 1916 – September 4, 1997) was a British psychologist of German origin, best remembered for his work on intelligence and personality, though he worked in a wide range of areas. At the time of his death, Eysenck was the living psychologist most frequently cited in science journals.

Eysenck wrote in Decline and Fall of the Freudian Empire that Freud "set back the study of [psychology and psychiatry] by something like fifty years or more", mis-diagnosed his patients, fraudulently misrepresented case histories and that "what is true in Freud is not new, and what is new is not true."
