[SEN141a10](b) English Translation:

[SEN141a11]‘Repression’ 1925 C.P., 4, 84-97. (Tr. C. M. Baines.)

[SEN141a12]The present translation, though based on that of 1925, has been very largely rewritten.

[SEN141a13]In his ‘History of the Psycho-Analytic Movement’ (1914d), Freud declared that ‘the theory of repression is the cornerstone on which the whole structure of psycho-analysis rests’ (p. 16 above); and in the present essay, together with Section IV of the paper on ‘The Unconscious’ which follows it (p. 180 ff.), he gave his most elaborate formulation of that theory.

[SEN141a14]The concept of repression goes back historically to the very beginnings of psycho-analysis. The first published reference to it was in the Breuer and Freud ‘Preliminary Communication’ of 1893 (Standard Ed., 2, 10). The term ‘Verdrängung’ had been used by the early nineteenth-century psychologist Herbart and may possibly have come to Freud's knowledge through his teacher Meynert, who had been an admirer of Herbart.
