The Psychology of Love - Sigmund Freud


This volume brings together Freud's main contributions to the psychology of love.

His illuminating discussions of the ways in which sexuality is always psychosexuality - that there is no sexuality without fantasy, conscious or unconscious - have changed the ways we think about erotic life. In these papers Freud develops his now famous theories about the sexuality of childhood and the transgressive nature of human desire. 

Writings included:

  • Fragment of an Analysis of Hysteria (Dora)
  • Three Essays on Sexual Theory
  • On the Sexual Theories of Children
  • Contributions to the Psychology of Erotic Life
  • 'A Child is Being Beaten'
  • On Female Sexuality
