He had read a book named "The Art of Becoming an Original Writer in Three Days”, by Ludwig Borne. There is a distinct possibility that the idea for his famous concept of “free association” came from that book.
Georg Groddeck, the physician published a book in 1923 in which he mentioned the concept of “das es” (German). Freud credited Groddeck in his famous book “Das Ich und das Es”, the Latinized version is “The Ego and the Id” and most people believe it to be a Freudian concept.
