Editorial history[ edit ] The Psychopathology was originally published in the Monograph for Psychiatry and Neurology in , [3] before appearing in book form in It would receive twelve foreign translations during Freud's lifetime, as well as numerous new German editions, [4] with fresh material being added in almost every one. James Strachey objected that "Almost the whole of the basic explanations and theories were already present in the earliest edition Among the most overtly autobiographical of Freud's works, [7] the Psychopathology was strongly linked by Freud to his relationship with Wilhelm Fliess.

A nice example of speech-blunder, which aims not so much at the betrayal of the speaker as at the en- lightenment of the listener outside the scene, is found in Wallenstein Piccolomini, Act I, Scene 5 , and shows us that the poet who here uses this means is well versed in the mechanism and intent of speech- blunders.

He leaves his father and the Court ambassador, Questenberg, in great consternation. The scene proceeds as follows: Woe unto us! Are matters thus? Friend, should we allow him to go there with this false opinion, and not recall him at once in order to open his eyes instantly.

He has already opened mine, and I see more than pleases me. What is it, friend? A curse on that journey! What is it?

When she finally found in Bassanio the suitor after her own heart, she had cause to fear lest he, too, should draw the unlucky lottery. But she is hampered by her vow. In this mental conflict the poet puts these words [p.

But lest you should not understand me well And yet a maiden hath no tongue but thought , I would detain you here some month or two, Before you venture for me. Beshrew your eyes, They have overlooked me, and divided me: One half of me is yours, the other half yours -- Mine own, I would say; but if mine, then yours -- And so all yours. It is through this artifice that he manages to allay the intolerable uncertainty of the lover as well as the like tension of the hearer concerning the outcome of the choice.

The plot of the novel is, shortly, as follows: Sir Willoughby Patterne, an aristocrat greatly admired by his circle, becomes engaged to a Miss Constantia Durham. She discovers in him an intense egoism, which he skilfully conceals from the world, and to escape the marriage she elopes with a Captain Oxford.

Some years later Patterne becomes engaged to a Miss Middleton, and most of the book is taken up with a detailed description of the conflict that arises in her mind on also discovering his egotism.

External circumstances and her conception of honour hold her to her pledge, while he be- comes more and more distasteful in her eyes. She partly confided in his cousin and secretary, Vernon Whitford, the man whom she ultimately marries, but from a mixture of motives stands aloof. Oh I to be caught out of this prison of thorns and brambles I cannot tear my own way out.

I am a coward. A beckoning of a finger would change me, I believe. I could fly bleeding and through hootings to a comrade. Constantia met a soldier.

Perhaps she prayed and her prayer was [p. She did ill. But, oh, how I love her for it! His name was Harry Oxford. She did not waver, she cut the links, she signed herself over.

Oh, brave girl, what do you think of me? But I have no Harry Whitford; I am alone. In another passage the same lapsus occurs, and is followed by the hes- itation and change of subject that one is familiar with in psychoanalysis when a half-conscious complex is touched.

Sir Willoughby patronizingly says of Whitford: The resolution to do anything unaccustomed is quite beyond poor old Vernon. Oxford -- Whitford. I was going to ask you, surely men witnessing a marked admiration for some one else will naturally be discouraged? In still another passage Clara, by another lapsus, betrays her secret wish that she was on [p. Vernon -- tell Mr. I have been able to demonstrate repeatedly that the most insignificant and most natural cases of speech- blunders have their good sense, and admit of the same interpretation as the more striking examples.

A patient who, contrary to my wishes but with firm personal motives, decided upon a short trip to Buda- pest justified herself by saying that she was for only three days, but she blundered said for only three weeks.

She, betrayed her secret feeling that, to spite me, she preferred spending three weeks to three days in that society which I considered unfit for her. One evening, wishing to excuse myself for not having called for my wife at the theatre, I said: After ten would certainly be no excuse.

Evidently the performance was over earlier and my wife did not wait me. When I looked at the clock it still wanted [p. I determined to make my case more favourable at home, and say that it was ten minutes to ten. Unfortunately, the speech-blunder spoiled the intent and laid bare my dishonesty, in which I acknowledged more than there really was to confess.

This leads us to those speech disturbances which can no longer be described as speech-blunders, for they do not injure the individual word. But here, as in the former cases, it is the inner conflict that is betrayed to us through the disturbance in speech. A clear and unequivocal manner of writing shows us that here the author is in harmony with himself, but where we find a forced and involved expression aiming at more target, as appropriately expressed, we can thereby recognize the participation of an unfinished and complicated [p.

I shall cite here some excellent observations concerning the forget- ting of names from the works of Professor E. Jones, of Toronto: Papers on Psycho-analysis, chap. Similarly, few things are more flattering to most people than to find themselves addressed by name by a great person where they could hardly have anticipated it.

Napoleon, like most leaders of men, was a master of this art. In the midst of the disastrous campaign of France in , he gave a proof of his memory in this direction. The delighted De Bussy at once threw himself into his ser- vice with extraordinary zeal.

Conversely, there is no surer of affronting some one than by pretending to forget his name; the insinuation is thus conveyed that the person is so unimportant in our eyes that we cannot be bothered to remember his name. This device is often exploited in literature. In this way, as well as by the lofty flourish of his hat in saluting him, he meant to insult his pride. Falsification of a name has the same signification as forgetting it; it is only a step towards complete amnesia. Psychoanalyse, ii.

CHAPTER 6 Mistakes in Reading and Writing That the same view-points and observation should hold true for mistakesin reading and writing as for lapses in speech is not at all surprisingwhen one remembers the inner relation of these functions.

I shall hereconfine myself to the reports of several carefully analysed examples andshall make no attempt to include all of the phenomena. The author promised a work in the near future tobe called Analy- sis and Principles of Dream Phenomena. No wonderthat I, having just published an Interpretation of Dreams, awaitedthe appearance of this book with the most intense interest.

Thereupon I had immediately plungedinto the text in order to find out whether he was also aware that the scenewhere Odysseus appears before Nau- sicaa was based upon the common dreamof nakedness. One of my friends called my attention to the clever passagein G. I added to it the reference to the exhibition dreamof nakedness. I immediately called my wife and informed her that poor Mrs.

Moreover, the correspondent was well acquainted withthe Christian name of the woman concerned. I defended my assertion obstinatelyand referred to the cus- tomary visiting-cards, on which a woman designatesherself by the Christian name of her husband. The title between the adjective and th- ename did not go well with my claim that the woman must have been meant.

That is why it was omitted in the reading. The motive for this falsifyingwas not that the woman was less an object of my sympathy than the man,but the fate of this poor man had excited my fears regarding another andnearer person who, I was aware, had the same disease. I then read antiquities on every shop- sign that shows the slightest resemblance to the word; this displays thequesting spirit of the collector. To my astonishment I found only the words blood corpuscles.

Of the many thousands of lapses in reading in the peripheral as well asin the central field of vision that I have analysed, this was the moststriking case. Whenever I imagined that I saw my name, the word that inducedthis illusion usually showed a greater resemblance to my name than theword bloodcorpuscles. In most cases all the letters of my name hadto be close together before I could commit such an error. In this case,however, I could readily explain the delusion of reference and the illusion.

What I had just read was the end of a statement concerning a form of badstyle in scientific works, a tendency from which I am not entirely free. It was not difficult to explain this anticipation as the expressionof a wish. A few days before I had returned fresh from my vacation andfelt ready for any amount of professional work, but as yet there were fewpatients. On my arrival I had found a letter from a patient announcingher arrival on the 20th of October. In this case the disturbing thought can scarcely be calledunpleasant; there- fore after noticing this lapse in writing, I immediatelyknew the solution.

In the fall of the following year I experienced an entirelyanalogous and similarly motivated lapse in writing. Jones has made astudy of similar cases, and found that most mistakes in writing dates aremotivated.

As a matter of fact, I found some strange-sounding names still in needof correction; but, oddly enough, the compositor had [p. I had written- Buckrhard, which the compositor guessed to be Burckhard. I had praised the treatise of this obstetri- cian entitled The Influenceof Birth on the Origin of Infantile Paralysis, and I was not consciousof the least enmity toward him.

But an author in Vienna, who had angeredme by an adverse criticism of my Traumdeutung, bears the same name. It was as if in writing the name Burckhard, meaning the obstetri- cian, awicked thought concerning the other B. The twistingof the name, as I have already stated in regard to lapses in speech, oftensignifies a depreciation. I intended to withdraw from the postal savings bank the sumof crowns, which I wished to send to an absent relative to enable himto take treatment at a watering-place.

I noted that my account was 4,crowns, and I decided to bring it down to the round sum of 4, crowns,[p. After making outthe regular cheque I suddenly noticed that I had written not crowns,as I had intended, but exactly crowns.

I was frightened at the untrustworthinessof my action. I soon realized that my fear was ground- less, as I had notgrown poorer than I was before. But I had to reflect for quite a whilein order to discov- er what influence diverted me from my first intentionwithout making itself known to my consciousness. First I got on a wrong track: I subtracted from , but after thatI did not know what to do with the difference.

Finally an idea occurredto me which showed me the true connection. But the bookseller, too, gives a10 per cent. I recalled that a few days before I had selectedseveral books, in which I was no longer interested, in order to offer themto the bookseller for crowns. He thought the price demanded too high,but promised to give me a final answer within the next few days. If heshould accept my first offer he would replace the exact sum that I wasto spend on the sufferer.

There is no doubt that I was sorry about thisexpenditure. The emotion at the realization of my mistakes can be moreeasily understood as a fear of growing poor through such outlays. But both[p.

I should prob- ably not have assigned such feelingsto myself had not my psychoanalytic practice made me quite fa- miliar withthe repressed elements of psychic life, and if I had not had a dream afew days before which brought forth the same solution. This state of affairs is very well summed up inthe fol- lowing editorial from the New York Times of April 14, Not the least interesting are the comments of the keen-witted editor, whoseems to share our views: They are always humiliating, often a causeof anger, and occasionally dangerous, but now and then they are distinctlyamusing.

This latter quality they are most apt to have when they are madein the office of a journalistic neighbour, a fact that probably explainswhy we can read with smiling composure an elaborate editorial apology whichappears in the Hartford Courant.

This authorized edition of the Bible was publishedin London in , and it is said that the printer had to pay a fine oftwo thousand pounds for the omission. Another biblical misprint dates back to the year , and is foundin the Bible of the famous library of Wolfenbuttel, in Hesse.

Ernest Jones reports the following case concerning A. During the next morning an exacerbation of an eye-strain headachegave him cause to regret [p. Havingoccasion to write the name of a girl mentioned by a patient, he wrote notEthel but Ethyl. A friend who waspresent noticed that the writer put the wrong address on the letter, andwhat was still more remarkable was the fact that she did not address itto the previous residence, but to one long ago given up, but which hersister had occupied when she first married.

In a letter to Dr. Brill a patient tried toattribute his nervousness to business worries and excitement during thecotton crisis. He went on to say: Omissions in writing are naturally explained in the same manner as mistakesin writing.

Dattner thinks it probable that the unconscious desire ofthe Hun- garian law-makers to grant Austria the least possible advantageshad something to do with this omis- sion.

Instead of keepinghis appointment he sent regrets which began as follows: He finally came to me months later, and in thecourse of the analysis I discovered that my suspicions at the time werejustified; there were no unforeseen circumstances to prevent his comingat that time; he was advised not to come to me.

The unconscious does notlie. He states: If the articulation following the ideas becomes retarded through mechani- calcauses, as in writing, such anticipations then readily make their appearance. It is a familiar fact that in reading aloud the attentionof the reader often wanders from the text and is directed toward his ownthoughts. The results of this deviation of attention are often such thatwhen interrupted and questioned he cannot even state what he had read. In other words, he has read automatically, although the reading was nearlyalways correct.

I do not think that such condi- tions favour any noticeableincrease in the mistakes. We are accustomed to assume concerning a who- leseries of functions that they are most precisely performed when done automatically,with scarcely any conscious attention.

This argues that the conditionsgoverning attention in mistakes in speaking, writing, and reading mustbe differently determined than assumed by Wundt cessation or diminutionof atten- tion. The examples which we have subjected to analysis have reallynot given us the right to take for granted a quantitative diminution ofattention. We found what is probably not exactly the same thing, a disturbanceof the attention through a strange obtruding thought. Footnotes [1] The Interpretation of Dreams, p.

Marhold, Truly, my name is Cinna. Tear him to pieces! I am Cinna the poet! No matter; his name is Cinna; tear the name out of his heartand let him go. CHAPTER 7 Forgetting of Impressions and Resolutions If any one should be inclined to overrate the state of our present knowledge of mental life, all that would be needed to force him to assume a modest attitude would be to remind him of the function of memory. No psychologic theory has yet been able to account for the connection between the funda- mental phenomena of remembering and forgetting; indeed, even the complete analysis of that which one can actually observe has as yet scarcely been grasped.

To-day forgetting has perhaps grown more puzzling than remembering, especially since we have learned from the study of dreams and pathologic states that even what for a long time we believed forgotten may suddenly return to consciousness. To be sure, we are in possession of some view-points which we hope will receive general recognition.

Thus we assume that forgetting is a spontaneous process to which we may ascribe a certain temporal discharge. We emphasize [p. We are ac- quainted with some of the conditions that underlie the tenaciousness of memory and the awakening of that which would otherwise remain forgotten. Nevertheless, we can observe in innumerable cases of daily life how unreliable and unsatisfactory our knowledge of the mechanism is. Thus we may listen to two persons exchanging reminiscences concerning the same outward impressions, say of a journey that they have taken together some time before.

What remains most firmly in the memory of the one is of- ten forgotten by the other, as if it had never occurred, even when there is not the slightest reason to as- sume that this impression is of greater psychic importance for the one than for the other. A great many of those factors which determine the selective power of memory are obviously still beyond our ken.

With the purpose of adding some small contribution to the knowledge of the conditions of forgetting, I was wont to subject to a psychologic analysis those cases in which forgetting concerned me personally. As a rule I took up only a certain group of those cases, namely, those in which the forgetting aston- ished me, because, in my opinion, I should have remem- [p.

I wish further to remark that I am generally not inclined to forgetfulness of things experienced, not of things learned , and that for a short period of my youth I was able to perform extraordinary feats of memory. When I was a schoolboy it was quite natural for me to be able to repeat from memory the page of a book which I had read; and shortly before I entered the University I could write down prac- tically verbatim the popular lectures on scientific subjects directly after hearing them.

In the tension before the final medical examination I must have made use of the remnant of this ability, for in certain subjects I gave the examiners apparently automatic answers, which proved to be exact reproductions of the text-book, which I had skimmed through but once and then in greatest haste. Since those days I have steadily lost control over my memory; of late, however, I became convinced that with the aid of a certain artifice I can recall far more than I would otherwise credit myself with remembering.

For example, when, during my office hours, a patient states that I have seen him before and I cannot recall either the fact or the time, then I help myself by guessing -- that is, I allow a num- ber of years, beginning from the present time, to come to my mind quickly. Whenever this could be controlled by records of definite information from [p. The same thing happens when I meet a casual acquaintance and, from politeness, inquire about his small child.

When he tells of its progress I try to fancy how old the child now is. I cannot state, however, what basis I have for this estimate. Of late I have grown so bold that I always offer my estimate spon- taneously, and still run no risk of grieving the father by displaying my ignorance in regard to his off- spring. Thus I extend my conscious memory by invoking my larger unconscious memory.

I shall report some striking examples of forgetting which for the most part I have observed in myself. I distinguish forgetting of impressions and experiences, that is, the forgetting of knowledge, from forget- ting of resolutions, that is, the forgetting of omissions. The uniform result of the entire series of obser- vations I can formulate as follows: The forgetting in all cases is proved to be founded on a motive of displeasure.

We sat in a restaurant opposite a gentleman from Vienna whom I knew, and who had cause to know me, and whose acquaintance I had reasons for not wishing to renew. My wife, who had heard nothing to the disrepute of the man opposite her, showed by her actions that she was listening to his conversation with his neighbours, for from time to time she asked me questions which took up the thread of their discussion.

I became impatient and finally irritated. A few weeks later I complained to a relative about this behaviour on the part of my wife, but I was not able to recall even a single word of the conversa- tion of the gentleman in the case.

As I am usually rather resentful and cannot forget a single incident of an episode that has annoyed me, my amnesia in this case was undoubtedly determined by respect for my wife. A short time ago I had a similar experience. I wished to make merry with an intimate friend over a statement made by my wife only a few hours earlier, but I found myself hindered by the noteworthy fact that I had entirely forgotten the statement.

I had first to beg my wife to [p. It is easy to understand that my forgetting in this case may be analogous to the typical disturbance of judgment which dominates us when it concerns those nearest to us. When I offered my services, the image of an establishment in the heart of the city where I was sure I had seen such safes floated before me with extraordinary visual vividness.

To be sure, I could not recall the name of the street, but I felt certain that I would dis- cover the store in a walk through the city, for my memory told me that I had passed it countless times. To my chagrin I could not find this establishment with the safes, though I walked through the inner part of the city in every direction.

I concluded that the only thing left to do was to search through a busi- ness directory, and if that failed, to try to identify the establishment in a second round of the city. It did not, however, require so much effort; among the addresses in the directory I found one which immedi- ately presented itself as that which had been forgotten.

It was true that I had passed the show window countless times, each time, however, when I had gone to visit the M. After [p. In my walk through the city searching for the safe in the show window I had traversed every street in the neighbourhood but the right one, and I had avoided this as if it were forbidden ground.

The motive of displeasure which was at the bottom of my disorientation is thus comprehensible. But the mechanism of forgetting is no longer so simple as in the former example. Simi- larly, in the case of Burckhard mentioned above, the grudge against the one brought about the error in writing the name of the other. The similarity of names which here established a connection between two essentially different streams of thought was accomplished in the showcase window instance by the contiguity of space and the inseparable environment.

Moreover, this latter case was more closely knit together, for money played a great part in the causation of the estrangement from the family living in this house. Company requested me to pay a professional call on one of their officers. On my way to him I was engrossed in the thought that I must already have been in the building occu- pied by the firm. It seemed as if I used to see their signboard in a lower story while my professional visit was taking me to a higher story.

I could not recall, however, which house it was nor when I had called there. Although the entire matter was indifferent and of no consequence, I nevertheless occupied myself with it, and at last learned in the usual roundabout way, by collecting the thoughts that occurred to me in this connection, that one story above the floor occupied by the firm B. Then I remembered the building which sheltered both the company and the pension. I was still puzzled, however, as to the motive that entered into play in this forgetting.

I found noth- ing disagreeable in my memory concerning the firm itself or the Pension Fischer, or the patients living there. I was also aware that it could not deal with anything very painful, otherwise I hardly would have been successful in tracing the thing forgotten in a roundabout way without resorting to external aid, as happened in the preceding example.

Finally it occurred to me that a little before, while starting on my [p. Some months previously I had seen this man in an apparently serious condition and had made the diagnosis of general paresis, but later I had learned of his recovery, consequently my judgment had been incorrect.

Was it not possible that we had in this case a remission, which one usually finds in dementia paralytica? In that contingency my diagnosis would still be justified. The influence emanating from this meeting caused me to forget the neighbourhood of the B. Company, and my interest to discover the thing forgotten was transferred from this case of disputed diagnosis.

But the associative connection in this loose inner relation was effected by means of a similarity of names: And the physician with whom I had seen the supposed paretic bore the name of Fischer, the name of the pension in the house which I had forgotten.

Like most people delving in pamphlets and books, I am well oriented about my desk, and can produce what I want with one lunge. What appears to others as disorder has become for me perfect order. Why, then, did I mislay a [p. What is more, it had been my intention to order a book which I found announced therein, entitled Ue- ber die Sprache, because it was written by an author whose spirited, vivacious style I like, whose insight into psychology and whose knowledge of the cultural world I have learned to appreciate.

I believe that was just why I mislaid the catalogue. It was my habit to lend the books of this author among my friends for their enlightenment, and a few days before, on returning one, somebody had said: Years ago, when I was younger and in greater need of forming alli- ances, I was told practically the same thing by an older colleague, to whom I had recommended the writings of a familiar medical author.

Through this premonition I was actually prevented from ordering the advertised [p. A younger man narrates as follows: I found her too cold, and though I fully appreciated her excellent qualities, we lived together without evincing any tenderness for each other.

One day on her return from a walk she gave me a book which she had bought because she thought it would interest me. So months passed, during which I occasionally remembered the lost book, and also tried in vain to find it. My wife left home to nurse her mother-in-law. One evening I returned home full of enthusiasm over what my wife had accomplished, and felt very grateful to her. I stepped to my desk and, without definite intention but with the certainty of a somnambulist, I opened a certain [p.

I must add that the patient who experienced this misplacing has himself found the solution of it. This patient, whose psychoanalytic treatment had to be interrupted through the summer vacation when he was in a state of resistance and ill-health, put away his keys in the evening in their usual place, or so he thought.

He then remembered that he wished to take some things from his desk, where he also had put the money which he needed on the journey. But the keys had disappeared. He began a thorough and systematic search through his small apartment. He became more and more excited over it, but his search was unsuccessful. After another hour he gave up the search and feared that he had lost the keys. The next morning he ordered new keys from the desk factory, which were hurriedly made for him. Two acquaintances who had [p.

They were found lying between a thick book and a thin pamphlet, the latter a work of one of my pupils, which he wished to take along as reading matter for his vacation; and they were so skilfully placed that no one would have supposed that they were there.

He himself was unable to replace the keys in such a position as to render them invisible. After accomplishing this he returned to the trunk and found it locked. Despite a long, earnest search the key could not be found. A locksmith could not be found on Sunday evening, so that the couple had to send their regrets. Considering the numerous cases of such deviations, he concludes that the boundary between the normal and abnormal human psyche is unstable and that we are all a bit neurotic.

Such symptoms are able to disrupt eating, sexual relations, regular work, and communication with others. Freud's conclusion is that: The unconscious, at all events, knows no time limit. The most important as well as the most peculiar character of psychic fixation consists in the fact that all impressions are on the one hand retained in the same form as they were received, and also in the forms that they have assumed in their further development.

This state of affairs cannot be elucidated by any comparison from any other sphere. By virtue of this theory every former state of the memory content may thus be restored, even though all original relations have long been replaced by newer ones.
