In Sigmund Freud and Josef Breuer published "Studies on Hysteria," a series of case studies of female patients with bizarre symptoms that had no obvious biological cause. Some patients complained of convulsive seizures and others of temporary blindness. Anna O, the most famous of the cases, experienced hallucinations and localized limb paralysis and also became catatonic for several months after the death of her father. Historically, these symptoms, exclusively thought to occur in women, were linked to the female sex organs—the ancient Egyptians believed them to be caused by undersexed uteri that began to "wander" throughout the body. But Freud hypothesized that these physical symptoms were not caused by anything biological but rather by extreme psychological stress that manifested itself in the body as illness. Uncovering the root psychological trauma, he believed, might cure the illness—a theory that became the basis for his practice of psychoanalysis. As in the case of Phineas Gage, another case of abnormal psychology had given researchers a better understanding of how the healthy brain might function. Today hysteria—renamed "conversion disorder" in —is viewed with some skepticism. Freud has long since fallen out of favor within the psychiatric community, which prefers a more scientific approach than the hyper-subjectivity of psychoanalysis. Yet researchers are at a loss to find any biological basis for the symptoms of conversion disorder. Also, for much of the late 20th century, hysteria was thought to have disappeared from the West either because it was never a valid disorder in the first place or because it has grown more rare as social mores and understanding about psychology have changed. But a study suggests that conversion disorder is just as prevalent as ever, with incidence rates on par with those of schizophrenia.

Strachey's translation is good enough, though, to make the book readable, and it should be read by everyone. Freud's clarity of thought and insight and pure intelligence is well represented in this book, and it serves as a decent introduction to elementary psychoanalysis. Great stuff. Right here the reader can discover much of the origin of psychotherapy. If you want to find earlier inspirations you can read a The Discovery of the Unconscious by Ellenberger.
