[SEQ135a13]A leading Hungarian man of letters of the day, H. Ignotus, invited Freud to contribute an article to the periodical Nyugat, of which he was editor, and this paper, evidently designed for an educated but uninstructed audience, was the result. The article was written at the end of 1916 and was first published in a Hungarian translation (under the title ‘A pszihoanalizis egy nehézségéröl’) in the early days of 1917. The original German appeared in Imago two or three months afterwards. A more general discussion of the resistances to the theories of psycho-analysis will be found in a paper of Freud's written some years later (1925e).
