On the Psychoanalytic Theory of Instinctual Drives—I: the Beginnings of Freud's Drive Theory

Allan Compton, M.D.

ABSTRACT

This is the first of a series of four papers which trace the development of Freud's theory of instinctual drives. The present paper considers the origins of drive theory in Freud's early, prepsychoanalytic hypotheses and in the first extended presentation of drive theory in the 1905 work, Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality.
