Edited by Daniela Finzi, Philippe van Haute and Herman Westerink - this volume is available in German only.
Sigmund Freud's Dora Case History represents a key text in his work. It is one of Freud's most theoretically and literarily important and interesting texts. Located at the intersection of hysteria studies, sexual theory, and dream interpretation, the examination of transference and trauma undertaken in it is groundbreaking. This volume presents the original version of the text as published in 1905. The detailed commentary focuses its attention, on the one hand, on theoretical issues such as Freud's views on infantile sexuality and trauma. On the other hand, the case history is subjected to a narratological examination. The issues raised by Freud in the Dora study are still of great relevance to contemporary researchers in the fields of psychoanalysis, sexuality, gender, philosophical anthropology, and literary studies.
