Review by:
Anders Zachrisson

First of all, the publication of Freud's collected writings in Swedish is, so far, a great achievement. When this is being written, August 1999, 5 beautiful and imposing (several exceed 600 pages) volumes have been published out of a projected total of 12. It is an impressive tour de force initiated by Clarence Crafoord and Lars Sjögren of the Swedish Psychoanalytical Society. Gathering all available resources, they set up a co-operation with the Swedish Society for Holistic Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, as well as the Psychoanalytic Forum (publishers of the journal Divan and Divanserien). Each volume is edited by an editor “in charge” of that specific volume. He or she is responsible for the expert reading, the introduction, annotations and notes. Crafoord, Sjögren and Bengt Warren form an editing committee responsible for co-ordination and final editing together with the publishing house.

An edition of this magnitude requires a great deal of work on the conceptual apparatus. Hence, a nomenclature-group has established a uniform terminology for all the volumes, using Vocabulaire de la Psychoanalyse by Laplanche and Pontalis as a point of departure. A translation of the above will appear in Swedish, possibly with Danish, Norwegian and Finnish terminologies added.

Both Gesammelte Werke and the English Standard Edition present Freud's writings in chronological order. The Swedish editors have chosen a model close to the German Studienausgabe, that is, to gather the texts thematically and to arrange them chronologically within each volume.
