Summary
"A physician and a jurist endeavor in this book to utilize our psychoanalytical knowledge in an attempt to gain an understanding of the criminal personality. The authors are convinced that the criminal is as legitimate an object for psychological investigation as is the neurotic or the normal individual. Contrary to common presumption, psychoanalysis is not merely a method of treatment of mental disorders; it is hoped that the pages which follow will bring proof that in addition to being a method of treatment psychoanalysis is a scientific discipline which studies the workings of the human psychic apparatus as such; hence, any field of human knowledge that deals with psychic processes of man lies eo ipso within the scope of psychoanalytical investigation. The authors hope that their venture will serve at least as a stimulus toward the future development of a psychoanalytic criminology; thus, along with the newly developed psychoanalytic ethnology and pedagogy the teaching of Freud might be utilized for the understanding of yet another aspect of our civilization. These pages, therefore, do not solicit primarily the attention of the medical psychoanalyst but rather that of the medico-legal expert and the jurist. Too, since justice is usually dispensed under the valuable control of public opinion, this book is also addressed to the general public. The professional analyst will, therefore, find in this book little which is not of purely elementary nature. However, in dealing with such subjects as dream interpretation, slips of the tongue or action, symptom formation, etc., we view them from the particular angle of criminology. May we express the hope that those who devote themselves to psychoanalytical therapy only will find in this new angle of approach a stimulus for the development of a newer point of view. We collaborated for four years endeavoring to work out both the theoretical and practical aspects of the problem, our work consisting of the psychoanalytical study of criminal cases which were of medico-legal interest. Our first case was studied in 1925. This special study gave us, we believe, sufficient insight into the problem to warrant our theoretical constructions. We illustrated these by some especially striking criminal histories. In conclusion we consider briefly those psychosociological factors which throw some light on the emotional difficulties with which the practical application of our views would be beset."--Foreword
