PREFACE TO THE
HEBREW TRANSLATION1
[1930]
THESE lectures were delivered in 1916 and 1917; they gave a
fairly accurate account of the position of the young science at
that period and they contained more than their title indicated.
They provided not only an introduction to psycho-analysis but
covered the greater part of its subject-matter. This is naturally
no longer true. Advances have in the meantime taken place in
its theory and important additions have been made to it, such
as the division of the personality into an ego, a super-ego and
an id, a radical alteration in the theory of the instincts, and
discoveries concerning the origin of conscience and the sense of
guilt. These lectures have thus become to a large extent incom­
plete; it is in fact only now that they have become truly
'introductory'. But in another sense, even to-day they have not
been superseded or become obsolete. What they contain is still
believed and taught, apart from a few modifications, in psycho­
analytic training schools.
Readers of Hebrew and especially young people /eager for
knowledge are presented in this volume with psycho-analysis
clothed in the ancient language which has been awakened to a
new life by the will of the Jewish people. The author can well
picture the problem which this has set its translator. Nor need
he suppress his doubt whether Moses and the Prophets would
have found these Hebrew lectures intelligible. But he begs
their descendants (among whom he himself is numbered), for
whom this book is designed, not to react too quickly to their
first impulses of criticism and dislike by rejecting it. Psycho­
analysis brings forward so much that is new, and among it so
much that contradicts traditional opinions and wounds deeply-
rooted feelings, that it is bound at first to provoke denial. A

reader who suspends his judgement and allows psycho-analysis
as a whole to make its impression on him will perhaps become
open to a conviction that even this undesired novelty is worth
knowing and is indispensable for anyone who wishes to under­
stand the mind and human life.
