Summary "For a long time I have wished to demonstrate, by using a case in treatment, how an analysis unfolds. However, when I set myself to work, I found that this is an almost impossible undertaking as the presentation of the full analysis of a case would require an excessive amount of time. Nevertheless, I should like you to take at least a brief look into the psychoanalytic workshop: I shall try to show, by means of a fragment of an analysis, how a theoretical understanding of certain problems gradually evolves. Even from such an abridged proceeding one can learn how complicated an analysis is, how intricate psychic processes are, and how cautious one should be in his theoretical conclusions. Thus we hope from the investigation of this patient's main symptom, curiosity, to be able to reach some conclusions about the normal development and function of this phenomenon. Briefly, the purpose of this paper is twofold: to give an idea of analytic procedure as well as to show the metamorphosis and the meaning of curiosity"--Book.
