PSYCHOPATHIA SEXUALIS by Richard von Krafft-Ebing


Email this review


The publisher's letter accompanying the galleys says, ""Although Krafft-Ebing intended this work for a restricted audience, almost immediately upon publication it became a classic known far beyond professional circles."" Mercy, yes. And now those passages the good doctor had the delicacy to record in Latin have been put into English, which ought to take the book even farther beyond professional circles. The introduction by Ernest van den Haag is a well written critique of Krafft-Ebing's work and the place it holds in pre-Freudian psychiatric literature.
