Bibliography: List of English Translations of Freud's Works

James Strachey

What follows is intended to be a complete list of all of Freud's writings that have been published in the English language up to the end of August, 1945. In compiling the list I have been especially indebted to Dr. John Rickman's Index Psychoanalyticus 1893–1926 (London, Hogarth Press, 1928) for the period which it covers. I have also made use of the very full Freud bibliography, extending to about the year 1930, compiled by Dr. K. Bühler and included in The Psychological Register (ed. Carl Murchison) III, 591–605 (Worcester, Mass., Clark University Press; London, Humphrey Milford, 1932). A subsequent list, also due to Dr. Rickman, will be found at the end of his General Selection from the Works of Sigmund Freud (London, Hogarth Press, 1937; reprinted in Civilization, War and Death, same editor and publishers, 1939). This carries the list of translations down to July, 1937, but records only the English titles.

It may be of interest to give some approximate indication of the proportion of Freud's writings that remain untranslated into English. The list below contains nearly a hundred and fifty items. Of these some twenty represent self-contained volumes, while another eighty are comprised in the four volumes of the Collected Papers. This leaves about fifty that have not hitherto been brought together in volume form, though more than half of these (including almost all the more important ones) are to be found in the pages of the International Journal. Compared with this total of a hundred and fifty translated books and papers, there are about fifty items in the two German collected editions which have never been published in English. These vary greatly in length, though they are for the most part very short and none of them is of great scientific interest. Finally, in addition to these, there are about thirty books and papers which belong to Freud's pre-psychological period and are not included in the German collected editions.
