Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality

The Problem of Sex as Instinct
  • Helen Block Lewis
Part of the Emotions, Personality, and Psychotherapy book series (EPPS)

Abstract

Freud’s Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality (1905), Interpretation of Dreams (1900), and Studies on Hysteria (Breuer & Freud, 1893–1895) are publications in which he set down his discovery that forbidden sexual longings were somehow transformed into neurotic symptoms. Although Freud’s theorizing in Three Essays emphasized the primacy of instincts, the outcome of this work has been to focus attention on the primacy of human emotional—specifically, affectional-social—bonds as governors of human behavior.
