  • Versuch einer Genitaltheorie by Ferenczi, S,(andor)
    Ferenczi, S,(andor)
    Versuch einer Genitaltheorie

    First Edition

    Leizig: Internationaler Psychoanalytischer Verlag, 1924. 128 pages. Text in German. In this monograph Ferenczi suggested that the wish to return to the womb and the comfort of its amniotic fluids symbolizes a wish to return to the origin of life, the sea. This idea of an "uterine and thalassal regression" became a feature of the so-called Budapest School, up to the disciple Michael Balint and his 1937 paper on "Primary [Object-]Love". According to Ferenczi, all forms of human practice, especially sex, were an attempt to reestablish genitalia with the intrauterine experience – a theory which resonated with architect Richard Neutra and may have inspired, or supplemented, Neutra's fascination with uterine suspension. - from Wikipedia. ISBN: B000MA65XY.

    First edition (first printing). A very good copy in paper over boards and brown cloth covers with gold lettering and raised bands on spine.
