On the Psychoanalytic Theory of Instinctual Drives—Ii: the Sexual Drives and the Ego Drives

Allan Compton, M.D.

ABSTRACT

This paper, the second in a series of four tracing the development of Freud's theory of instinctual drives, deals with the elaboration of the 1905 theory of sexuality, the introduction of ego drives contrasted with sexual drives, and the relation of drive theory to the topographic theory of the mental apparatus, as these issues were presented by Freud up to and including 1915.
