Die Rauchende Frau. Eine Klinische, Psychologische Und Soziale Studie. By Dr. R. Hofstätter. (Verlag Holder-Pichler-Tempsky A. G., Vienna.)

Review by:
Karen Horney

This work gathers together in a very comprehensive way the results of general research into the causes and consequences of the misuse of nicotine among women. It has an expressly psychological orientation, and is, on that account, of some, though limited, interest to the analyst. The author is very careful not to attribute simply to nicotine all the phenomena that make their appearance after smoking; but sees that psychical forces frequently play the larger part in these. In discussing the motives that drive women to smoking he emphasizes chiefly those that are unconscious, such as dread of sexuality, the rejection of the feminine rôle and the wish to play the man's part, and, on the other hand, the symbolic demonstration of sexual freedom, then the longing for recognition and consideration, and, finally, the pleasure of setting something on fire.
