Sigmund Freud

September 24, 1900

Dear Wilhelm,

Many thanks for your letter and the clipping; am replying to the latter today. I must, after all, take an interest in reality in sexuality, which one learns about only with great difficulty. Am slowly writing the “Psychology of Everyday Life” (to be in error — madness).1 To my regret, I will even have to ask you to return a letter from Berchtesgaden to me, the one that contains the analysis of a number chosen at random.2 I have fewer objections to the way the theologians go about it than to the indignant introductions of our writers, even by von Krafft-Ebing. Could recommend C. Rieger's Castration to you as a counterpart.3

I am miserable with a sinus cold.

Cordial greetings.

Your

Sigm.

Notes to "Letter from Freud to Fliess, September 24, 1900"

1 Freud means that the sound of the German Irren (to err) reminds him of Irre (madmen).

2 See note I to letter of August 27, 1899, where this is referred to.

3 Conrad Rieger was professor of psychiatry at the University of Würzburg. The book referred to is Die Castration in rechtlicher, socialer und vitaler Hinsicht (Jena: Gustav Fischer, 1900). See note 3 to letter of November 2, 1896.
