The (2+1)-dimensional Thirring model is studied by using the Gaussian approximation method in the functional Schrödinger picture. Although dynamical symmetry breaking does not occur in the large-N limit, it does occur in the Gaussian approximation which includes the higher order contributions in 1/N.
