Hemmung, Symptom Und Angst

By Freud, Sigmund

Leipzig/Wien/Zurich: Internationaler Psychoanalytischer Verlag. 1926. F First Edition. H Hard Cover. Very Good -. 136 pp. First Edition, 1926. Text in German. "Translated as Inhibitions, Symptoms, and Anxiety, this extremely important essay for the evolution of Freudian thought and should be seen, in large part, as a response to the ideas of Otto Rank in The Trauma of Birth (1929). As a curious side note, it is worth noting that when Freud was writing Inhibitions, Symptoms, and Anxiety, his daughter Anna was preparing "The Psychoanalytic Treatment of Children"; that is, while the father was investigating anxiety, separation anxiety in particular, his daughter was working on the distinction between child and adult psychoanalysis. Inhibitions, Symptoms, and Anxiety is divided into ten chapters (without titles) and three addenda, entitled "Modification of Earlier Views," "Supplementary Remarks on Anxiety," and "Anxiety, Pain, and Mourning." Some commentators saw in the fact that Freud discussed pain in the final addendum a reflection of the theoretical difficulties he had encountered in studying the phenomenon, which he had discussed earlier in Mourning and Melancholia." Stamp-sized owner's ex libris plate on upper fore-edge corner front pastedown. Aged-toned spine with lightly age-toned panels and text block edges. 1"x3" clipped rectangle at top fore-edge corners ffep - title page.
