Psychology of Sex, 12th Impression covers the psycho-physical processes of sex, their liability to disturbance, or their hygiene. This scientific inquiry of sex is the representation of experimentally demonstrable data with the aid of mathematical symbolism. This book is composed of eight chapters that focus on the normal phenomena of sex. After a short introduction to the fundamentals of sexual psychology, this book goes on discussing the physical basis of courtship and sex. The subsequent chapters describe the nature of sexual impulse, particularly in youth, factors contributing to sexual d

The story centers on Étienne Lantier, a young migrant worker who arrives at the coalmining town of Montsou in search of work as a coalminer.

"The origin of these Studies dates from many years back. As a youth I was faced, as others are, by the problem of sex. Living partly in an Australian city where the ways of life were plainly seen, partly in the solitude of the bush, I was free both to contemplate and to meditate many things. A resolve slowly grew up within me: one main part of my life-work should be to make clear the problems of sex. Now that I have at length reached the time for beginning to publish my results, these results scarcely seem to me large. As a youth, I had hoped to settle problems for those who came after; now I am quietly content if I do little more than state them. For even that, I now think, is much; it is at least the half of knowledge. In this particular field the evil of ignorance is magnified by our efforts to suppress that which never can be suppressed, though in the effort of suppression it may become perverted. I have at least tried to find out what are the facts, among normal people as well as among abnormal people; for, while it seems to me that the physician's training is necessary in order to ascertain the facts, the physician for the most part only obtains the abnormal facts, which alone bring little light I have tried to get at the facts, and, having got at the facts, to look them simply and squarely in the face. Here you will find the whole sexual life of men and women analyzed in its relationships to sin. Everything is set forth, as clearly and as concisely as it can be -- without morbid prudery on the one hand, or morbid sentimentality on the other -- in the coldest scientific language; the right course of action is pointed out for all the cases that may occur, and we are told what is lawful, what a venial sin, what a mortal sin. Now I do not consider that sexual matters concern the theologian alone, and I deny altogether that he is competent to deal with them. In his hands, also, undoubtedly, they sometimes become prurient, as they can scarcely fail to become on the non-natural and unwholesome basis of asceticism, and as they with difficulty become in the open-air light of science. But we are bound to recognize the thoroughness with which the Catholic theologians dealt with these matters, and, from their own point of view, indeed, the entire reasonableness; we are bound to recognize the admirable spirit in which, successfully or not, they sought to approach them. Ten years have elapsed since then and this new edition will be found to reflect the course of that long interval. Not only is the volume greatly enlarged, but nearly every page has been partly rewritten. This is mainly due to three causes: Much new literature required to be taken into account; my own knowledge of the historical and ethnographic aspects of the sexual impulse has increased; many fresh illustrative cases of a valuable and instructive character have accumulated in my hands. It is to these three sources of improvement that the book owes its greatly revised and enlarged condition, and not to the need for modifying any of its essential conclusions. These, far from undergoing any change, have by the new material been greatly strengthened"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)

"In this preface, Ellis describes his motives for and methods of writing his autobiography. Ellis had started with the idea that, of all forms prose outside the limits of imaginative art, there is no form so precious in its nature and so permanent in its value as autobiography, and he models his work on influential autobiographies. He provides an apology for the selection of his narrative, particularly with respect to the the importance of spiritual biography and the use of events from his inner and outer life and his discussion of his wife's life. He also argues that the autobiography was written to help others gain a picture, not just of his life, but of life itself"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
