review ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ö Richard von Krafft-Ebing

Psychopathia Sexualis eine Klinisch Forensische StudieFirst published in Germany in Psychopathia Sexualis eine Klinisch PDFEPUB #233 was extremely successful as both a classic reference volume for psychiatrists and as a new form of pornographic literature for the sexually transgressive and perverse Printed in seven languages and twelve editions during the author's lifetime it was. Another SCORE from my local second hand book shop I only paid 5 Euro for this classic not realizing what a great find it was Richard von Kraft Ebing's study of pathological sex is said to be the foundation of Freud's most notable works Because this book was written in 1886 and translated from German I did find some of it hard to read This book is reuired reading in many university sponsored psychology courses so it's by no means light reading It took me far longer than usual to get through this book because I took the time to research words and concepts I was unfamiliar with I recently found an electronic bookmark that allows you to look up look up words; consider it a bookmark cum dictionary I definitely need to invest in one as I focus my reading on in depth topics I'm not an academic by any means but I do enjoy educating myself on topics I find appealingThis book attempts to explain the deeper meaning behind certain sexual activities that we consider mainstream nowbut weren't at that time Sadomasochism bondage and various fetishes are all discussed and analysed making for some interesting conversation points on various forums While I can't say I agree with the over simplification von Kraft Ebing offers on certain topics he certainly gives a great starting point for further exploration and researchOne topic I found very interesting is that homosexuality was treated as a mental illness right up until the beginning of the last century In fact some schools of thought are STILL convinced a person can be cured of being homosexual An antiuated highly damaging concept of coursebut reflective of the Victorian ageI highly recommend this amazing bookPS You can download a free e book version from the Gutenberg Project website There are actually uite a few classics that I look forward to reading that I obtained from that site
