[SEL213a11]‘Formulations Regarding the Two Principles in Mental Functioning’ 1925 C.P., 4, 13-21. (Tr. M. N. Searl.)

[SEL213a12]The present translation, with a modified tide, is based on the one published in 1925, but has been largely re-written.

[SEL213a13]We learn from Dr. Ernest Jones that Freud began planning this paper in June, 1910, and was working at it simultaneously with the Schreber case history (1911c). His progress at it was slow, but on October 26 he spoke on the subject before the Vienna Psycho-Analytical Society, but found the audience unresponsive, and was himself dissatisfied with his presentation. It was not until December that he actually began writing the paper. It was finished at the end of January, 1911, but was not published till late in the spring, when it appeared in the same issue of the fahrbuch as the Schreber case.

[SEL213a14]With this well-known paper, which is one of the classics of psycho-analysis, and with the almost contemporary third section of the Schreber case history, Freud, for the first time after an interval of more than ten years, took up once again a discussion of the general theoretical hypotheses which were implied by his clinical findings.
