Download E-books Trois essais sur la théorie de la sexualité PDF

Le présent ouvrage est le texte définitif écrit par Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) et publié en 1923.

C'est avec l. a. parution de cet ouvrage en 1905 que Freud healthy scandale et se rendit impopulaire dans l'Europe entière. L'idée d'une sexualité childish avait, il est vrai, de quoi choquer son époque. Elle renversait los angeles représentation commune de l'innocence sexuelle de l'enfant, et plus profondément encore, los angeles notion naturaliste qui fait de l. a. sexualité l'expression d'un intuition de replica n'apparaissant qu'avec los angeles puberté. Non, soutient Freud, le désir sexuel (ou libido) ne relève pas d'une fonction physiologique. Il s'élabore psychiquement au cours de l'histoire individuelle qui débute dès les premiers plaisirs de l'enfance, liés à l'allaitement. C'est dans cet ouvrage que Freud formule pour los angeles première fois sa théorie des pulsions. C'est donc à double titre que les Trois essais sur l. a. théorie sexuelle constituent un événement : ils représentent une étape décisive dans le cheminement théorique de Freud et un tournant dans l'histoire de notre tradition et de notre représentation de l'enfance.

Sommaire :

1. Les aberrations sexuelles.

2. l. a. sexualité infantile.

3. Les variations de l. a. puberté.

Extrait :

"Pour expliquer les besoins sexuels de l’homme et de l’animal, on se sert, en biologie, de l’hypothèse qu’il existe une « pulsion sexuelle » ; de même que pour expliquer los angeles faim, on believe los angeles pulsion de meals. Toutefois, le langage populaire ne connaît pas de terme qui, pour le besoin sexuel, corresponde au mot faim ; le langage scientifique se sert du terme : « libido »2.

L’opinion populaire se forme certaines idées arrêtées sur l. a. nature et les caractères de los angeles pulsion sexuelle. Ainsi, il est convenu de dire que cette pulsion manque à l’enfance, qu’elle se constitue au second de los angeles puberté, et en rapport étroit avec les processus qui mènent à l. a. maturité, qu’elle se manifeste sous los angeles forme d’une allure irrésistible exercée par l’un des sexes sur l’autre, et que son yet serait l’union sexuelle, ou du moins un ensemble d’actes qui tendent à ce but.

Nous avons toutes les raisons de croire que cette description ne rend que très imparfaitement l. a. réalité. Si on l’analyse de près, on y découvre une foule d’erreurs, des inexactitudes et des jugements précipités.

Commençons par fixer deux termes. l. a. personne qui exerce un attrait sexuel sera désignée comme objet sexuel, et l’acte auquel pousse los angeles pulsion sera nommé yet sexuel. L’expérience scientifique nous prouve qu’il existe de nombreuses déviations family members tantôt à l’objet, tantôt au yet sexuel, et il nous faudra chercher à approfondir les rapports qui existent entre ces déviations et ce qu’on estime être l’état de choses normal."
