[SEM163a8]‘The Claims of Psycho-Analysis to Scientific Interest’

[SEM163a9]The present translation, by James Strachey, now appears for the first time and, so far as is known, is the first to be published in English.

[SEM163a10]This paper was written by Freud at the express request of the Editor of Scientia, the well-known Italian scientific periodical. The precise dates of its publication were probably September and November, 1913. It is the only at all comprehensive account that he has given of the non-medical applications of psycho-analysis.

[SEM163a11]Part I: The Psychological Interest of Psycho-Analysis

[SEM163a12]Psycho-Analysis is a medical procedure which aims at the cure of certain forms of nervous disease (the neuroses) by a psychological technique. In a small volume published in 1910 I described the evolution of psycho-analysis from Josef Breuer's cathartic procedure and its relation to the theories of Charcot and Pierre Janet.

[SEM163a13]We may give as instances of disorders that are accessible to psycho-analytic treatment hysterical convulsions and paralyses as well as the various symptoms of obsessional neurosis (obsessive ideas and actions).
