Translated by Ebrahim Malek Esmaeili ‘Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality’
, advances Freud’s theory of sexuality, he sought to link to his theory of the unconscious put forward in ‘The Interpretation of Dreams’
(1899) and his work on hysteria by positing sexuality as the driving force of both neuroses (through repression) and perversion.
The three essays of the book include: “Sexual Aberrations”. Freud began this first essay by distinguishing between the sexual object and the sexual aim — noting that deviations from the norm could occur with respect to both. The sexual object is therein defined as a desired object, and the sexual aim as what acts are desired with said object.
The second essay is “Infantile Sexuality”, in which the author argues that children have sexual urges, from which adult sexuality only gradually emerges.
In his third essay, “The Transformations of Puberty” Freud formalized the distinction between the 'fore-pleasures' of infantile sexuality and the 'end-pleasure' of sexual intercourse.
The Persian translation of ‘Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality’ is published in 284 pages with a print run of 1000 copies.
