[SEL205a2]Editor's Note to "On Psycho-Analysis"
[SEL205a4](a) German Edition:
[SEL205a5](1911 Date of composition: no German text extant.)
[SEL205a6](b) English Translation:
[SEL205a8]1913 Australasian Medical Congress, Transactions of the Ninth Session 2, Part 8, 839-42.
[SEL205a9]The present translation is a modified version of the one published in 1913.
[SEL205a10]Early in March, 1911, Freud received an invitation from Dr. Andrew Davidson, the secretary of the Section of Psychological Medicine and Neurology, to send a paper to be read before the Australasian Medical Congress which was to meet in Sydney in September of that year. He despatched his paper on May 13, and it was duly read, and later published in the Transactions of the Congress, along with papers (also on psychoanalytic subjects) by Jung and Havelock Ellis.
[SEL205a11]No German text is to be found, but it appears unlikely, from internal evidence, that the published version can have been written by Freud himself in English. It is more probable that it was translated from a German original, possibly in Australia. There seems to be no particular reason, therefore, for keeping to the published text, and we have accordingly made some slight terminological and stylistic modifications in it.
[SEL205a12]In response to a friendly request by the Secretary of your Section of Neurology and Psychiatry, I venture to draw the attention of this Congress to the subject of psycho-analysis, which is being extensively studied at the present time in Europe and America.
