Today’s free eBook of the Day is Leonardo da Vinci: A Psychosexual Study of an Infantile Reminiscence by Sigmund Freud.

Enjoy Freud’s psychoanalysis of da Vinci. Here is an excerpt: “The character of the man Leonardo evinces still some other unusual traits and apparent contradictions. Thus a certain inactivity and indifference seemed very evident in him. At a time when every individual sought to gain the widest latitude for his activity, which could not take place without the development of energetic aggression towards others, he surprised every one through his quiet peacefulness, his shunning of all competition and controversies. He was mild and kind to all, he was said to have rejected a meat diet because he did not consider it just to rob animals of their lives, and one of his special pleasures was to buy caged birds in the market and set them free.”
