Over time, Peter Gay came to see her as an ally and partner in a common scholarly and intellectual enterprise. Gay's move to the discipline of history coincided with a growing interest in the Enlightenment. A 1954 essay, The Enlightenment in the History of Political Theory, provides insight into his early thinking on the topic. Freud, Jews and Other Germans may have marked an endpoint in Gay's engagement with German cultural history, but it signaled the beginning of a decade of intensive scholarly engagement with the life and thought of Freud.
