My rating old books is hard Alright basically this whole book is made of case histories focusing on people's different sexual pathologies Who these people are is unkmown and I get the feeling most of them were not Krafft Ebing's patients but instead cases picked up from newspapers closed criminal cases and hearsay from all over the world I mean he goes as far as classifying Jack the Ripper's caseThis is a completely outdated book and it's only value is serving as a reference of how morally constrained psychology if you can call it that used to be The author keeps calling the people on these stories monsters deficient and other berating adjectives Masturbation was thought to bring 'neurasthenia' sexual dysfunction and whatever the author choosed to say Here's a uote straight from the book to illustrate this No doubt excessive masturbation brought about neurosis and inverted sexuality to which he was led by excessive libido It's appalling how these poor people were so mislead by their psychiatristAnd of course this was written back when psychopathology was thought to be an hereditary trait First thing Krafft Ebing wrote down on every case right after the name and age of the patient was all the 'taints' the patient's relatives possessed A drunkard mother a suicidal cousin a depressed sister these were all possible causes to the patient's maladies The author was also very set on listing epilepsy as the reason behind big part of these pathologiesThe most insightful parts of the book and the ones I enjoyed the most are the times Krafft Ebing steps aside and just transcribe letters or self written biographies of the patients Their reasonings and first hand account of suffering for being different tell much than all the inconseuential physical snips of information the author presents us withFinishing this book took me a while 'cause I kept putting it down again and again Krafft Ebing was not a literary award winner let me tell you that After reading three or four cases of a certain pathology it's like you've read them all already And something that bothered me a lor while reading it was that they are almost always inconclusive It's like the author had no idea about anything that went on with the patient's thoughts and never attempted any treatment; he just limited himself to classify their sexual practices and find an organic origin for them
