[SEC187a12]Included (No. XXXVI) in Freud's own collection of abstracts of his early works (1897b). The present translation is a modified version of that of 1924.

[SEC187a13]According to a footnote in the Wiener klinische Rundschau of May 31, 1896, this paper is based on a lecture delivered by Freud before the ‘Verein für Psychiatrie und Neurologie’ on May 2. The correctness of this date is, however, questionable. In an unpublished letter to Fliess of Thursday, April 16, Freud wrote that on the following Tuesday [April 21] he was due to give a lecture before the ‘Psychiatrischer Verein’. He does not specify the topic, but in another unpublished letter, dated April 26 and 28, 1896, he reported having given a lecture before that society on the aetiology of hysteria. He went on to remark that ‘the donkeys gave it an icy reception’ and that Krafft-Ebing, who was in the chair, said it sounded like a scientific fairy tale.
