KRAFFT-EBING, RICHARD von
Psychopathia Sexualis. Eine Klinisch-Forensische Studie. Stuttgart: Ferdinand Enke, 1886
FIRST EDITION of the founding work of sexology. “Austrian psychiatrist Richard von Krafft-Ebing is primarily known as the founding father of sexology. His Psychopathia Sexualis is widely accepted to be the foundational work for the scientific study of human sexuality, a field still in its infancy at the end of the nineteenth century. Psychopathia Sexualis offers an overview of both sexological physiology and psychology and is of groundbreaking importance for the origin of the modern scientific research domain of sexological pathology as an autonomous discipline.”
