Freud's landmark writings on love and sexuality-including the famous case study of Dora- newly translated and in one volume for the first time
This original collection brings together the most important writings on the psychology of love by one of the great thinkers of the twentieth century. Sigmund Freud's discussions of the ways in which sexuality is always psychosexuality-that there is no sexuality without fantasy- have changed social, cultural, and intellectual attitudes toward erotic life. Among the influential pieces included here are "On Female Sexuality," "The Taboo of Virginity," "A Child Is Being Beaten," and the widely cited case history of the eighteen-year-old Dora, making The Psychology of Love essential reading for anyone who wants to understand Freud's tremendous legacy.
Penguin should be congratulated on this innovative and timely project.
