Otto Rank

Otto Rank (April 22, 1884-October 31, 1939) was an Austrian psychologist who extended psychoanalytic theory to the study of legend, myth, art, and other works of creativity.

Born in Vienna as Otto Rosenfeld, he was also one of Sigmund Freud's closest aides and later colleagues and finally critic. He is the most prolific author in the "Ring" besides Freud himself.

He died in New York City in 1939.
