Pre-Freudian sexology

Yep, the Jew took the credit for something.

I am shocked.

(Okay so maybe Freud just let them say it without correction but that’s still taking someone else’s credit). Freud cited this guy in his writings (might’ve been the basis for many theories) and didn’t really bother correcting the public.

That or people who credit Kinsey* (Twink BDSM enthusiast on the taxpayer dollar of his office basement with a keen interest in child sexuality) with “inventing” sexology. A century later.

No, it was Krafft-Ebing.

Forget Freud. Today, we’re snooping around the personal archives of Richard von Krafft-Ebing, a 19th century psychoanalyst and sexologist extraordinaire who history has often been forgotten despite his groundbreaking research in sexual pathology. His chef d’oeuvre is undoubtedly Psychopathia Sexualis, the book that made jaws drop across Europe in 1886 and the first-ever scientific study on sexual deviation. “For almost one hundred years,” explains psychologist and sex researcher Dr. Joseph LoPiccolo,  it stood as the world’s most informative volume on the subject of sexual deviation.”

Krafft-Ebing’s research preceded Freud’s by decades, and Sexualis included over 238 case studies exploring “sexually deviant activities” like sadism, masochism, fetishism and more. Plus, he coined the term “anilingus”.

Deviance and degeneracy? This guy made it science.

 they’re actually the only archives we have from the eccentric sexologist (whose seminars were described as “showy,” “glamorous” and “highly sensational”).

*fraudulent data aside

This guy is like the Tesla of sexology to Freud or Kinsey’s Edison.

Also Ellis. Havelock Ellis.

This is like how people remember Freud as inventing psychology when he actually invented psychiatry (as a medical doctor). William Wundt invented psychology.

They remember Newton’s studies but think Goethe was a poet.

They don’t know who Emilie du Chatelet was but remember Voltaire.

They know Pavlov and not William James.

Nobody ever ever ever EVER talks about Sir Galton.

One of the greatest minds of all time. Newton would be impressed with Galton.

Nobody mentions it.

Francis Bacon is superior in all ways to Albert Einstein.

Sir Scruton is a living example of ignored genius.

One response to “Pre-Freudian sexology

1. Be civil. 2. Be logical or fair. 3. Do not bore me.
