Description

Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality
Sexual Abberations
Infantile Sexuality
Transformations of Puberty

"At the turn of the last century, Freud produced the Three Essays and The Interpretation of Dreams, the two pillars upon which the whole of his psychoanalysis sits like a lintel. Of the two, it is the Three Essays, with its outline of "the libido theory," that has again and again attracted controversy and spurred the later development of psychoanalysis." --Elisabeth Young-Bruehl

"Publishing the Three Essays in a new accessible edition is exciting in and of itself; the commentaries by Marcus and Chodorow make it an historic volume. It is fitting to have a contemporary thinker such as Chodorow help the next generation understand its monumental contributions." --Steven J. Ellman
