[SEI129a12]The present translation is based on the one published in 1924.

[SEI129a13]This was written at the request of a Hamburg doctor, Dr. M. Fürst, for publication in a periodical devoted to social medicine and hygiene of which he was the editor. We learn from Ernest Jones (1955, 327-8) that Freud gave a much fuller account of his views on the subject in a discussion at the Vienna Psycho-Analytical Society on May 12, 1909. He had already discussed it there at a meeting on December 18, 1907. (See the Minutes, 1.) Some thirty years later he returned to the topic of the ‘sexual enlightenment’ of children in the last paragraph of Section IV of his paper on ‘Analysis Terminable and Interminable’ (1937c). He shows there that the question is a considerably less simple one than appears in the present discussion.
