|Louie lives on in our hearts|
Louis Sebastian Berger (October 12, 1927 - August 17, 2014), was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, and moved to New York with his mother, adoptive father, and sister when he was a young child. A graduate of Princeton University, he earned a Master of Music degree from the University of Texas at Austin, a Master of Science degree in physics from Trinity University, and Doctor of Philosophy degree in psychology from the University of Tennessee.
Dr. Berger had brilliant careers in engineering, music, and psychology. He played beautiful music as a cellist in the Boston Symphony Orchestra, provided healing therapy and leadership as a clinical psychologist in San Antonio, Texas, and published numerous intriguing articles and books on subjects ranging from mathematics to psychology to philosophy. He spent his last years reading and writing radical philosophical works, listening to music, researching diet and fitness, debating politics, playing bridge, loving his wife, and relishing the quietness in rural Monroe County, Georgia. His last book will be published posthumously.
This memorial website was created in memory of Louis S Berger, beloved husband, author, psychologist, cellist, engineer, and friend. Please feel free to leave a memorial tribute or story and upload your own pictures of Louis.
"A beautiful memorial tribute to a brilliant psychologist who helped me get grounded during a very dark and difficult period of my life in the early 1990s. Twenty-five years later, I still remain eternally grateful for Dr. Berger's professional care and innate gift of psychoanalysis."
