of humanity and like other moral taboos it must be fixed in many 

individuals through organic heredity. (Cf. my work, Totem and Taboo, 

1913.) Psychoanalytic studies show, however, how intensively the 

individual struggles with the incest temptations during his development 

and how frequently he puts them into phantasies and even into reality. 

 

[10] Compare the description concerning the inevitable relation in the 

Oedipus legend (The Interpretation of Dreams, p. 222, translated by A.A. 

Brill, The Macmillan Co., New York, and Allen & Unwin, London). 

 

[11] Innumerable peculiarities of the human love-life as well as the 

compulsiveness of being in love itself can surely only be understood 

through a reference to childhood or as an effective remnant of the same. 

 

[12] This was true not only of the "negative" tendencies to perversion 

appearing in the neurosis, but also of the so-called positive 

perversions. The latter are not only to be attributed to the fixation of 

the infantile tendencies, but also to regression to these tendencies 

owing to the misplacement of other paths of the sexual stream. Hence the 

positive perversions are also accessible to psychoanalytic therapy. (Cf. 

the works of Sadger, Ferenczi, and Brill.) 

 

[13] Here one often sees that at first a normal sexual stream begins at 

the age of puberty, but owing to its inner weakness it breaks down at 

the first outer hindrance and then changes from regression, to perverse 

fixation. 

 

[14] That keen observer of human nature, E. Zola, describes a girl in 

his book, La Joie de vivre, who in cheerful self renunciation offers all 

she has in possession or expectation, her fortune and her life's hopes 

to those she loves without thought of return. The childhood of this girl 

was dominated by an insatiable desire for love which whenever she was 

depreciated caused her to merge into a fit of cruelty. 

 

[15] It is possible that the heightened adhesion is only the result of a 

special intensive somatic sexual manifestation of former years.
