[SEL327a11]The present translation is a new one by James Strachey.
[SEL327a12]Dr. Oskar Pfister, a Zurich pastor and educationalist and the author of the work to which this is an introduction, was for thirty years a close friend of Freud's and an unswerving supporter of his views. He was one of the very first laymen to practise psycho-analysis, and the later part of Freud's introduction is perhaps his earliest published plea in favour of the recognition of non-medical psycho-analysts. He developed his argument at much greater length some twenty years later in The Question of Lay Analysis(1926e).
[SEL327a13]The date at the end of the introduction (which appears here by arrangement with Messrs Routledge and Kegan Paul) is omitted in the German reprints.
[SEL327a14]Psycho-analysis had its origin on medical soil, as a therapeutic procedure for the treatment of certain nervous illnesses which were termed ‘functional’ and which were considered with increasing certainty to be consequences of disturbances in emotional life.
