Note on Translation, July 2022

Sigmund Freud uses the term ‘angst’. This has been translated by James Strachey as ‘anxiety’. 

Translations from the internet:

Angst: anxiety; fear; fright; panic; terror; stuffiness; oppression; heaviness; sinking feeling

Angst → anxiety, fear, fright, dread

Angst → fear of failure, anxiety, anguish, dread, apprehension, fear, fright, trepidation, alarm

Jacques Lacan, who read Sigmund Freud in the original German, translates ‘angst’ from German into French as ‘l’angoisse’.

Cormac Gallagher & Adrian Price both translate ‘l’angoisse’ as ‘Anxiety’. This is a mistake. It is almost certain that Seminar X should be called, Of Anguish (de l’angoisse) & the references to ‘anxiety’ should be changed to ‘anguish’. The same is true of James Strachey’s translation.

Diary or Chronology of Important Events in Freud’s Life

From his birth on May 6, 1856 until Dec. 31, 1900. : by Richard Klein : updated 23rd May 2022.  See www.Freud2Lacan.com  /Homepage (Diary or Chronology of Important Events in Freud’s Life)   

Names of the Analysts who have been analysed by Sigmund Freud  : 14th June 2022 : Richard Klein

Richard Klein has put together an orderly listing—a genealogical chart—of “who analyzed whom” in the early, classic years of psychoanalysis. As a by-product of this project, there is provided in Names of Analysts,  at www.Freud2Lacan.com  /homepage (Names of the Analysts), an alphabetical list of over 200 of Freud’s patients.  In translating Seminar IV, it is noticed that Jacques Lacan refers disparagingly to ‘authors’.  These are identified at http://www.lacanianworks.net/?p=11980 the main target being Sacha Nacht, with many others.  Through this recently (14th June 2022) updated document, it is possible to trace some of the relations between ‘authors’ and Jacques Lacan, for example look at Rudolf Loewenstein’s analysands.

Unorthodox Freud : The view from the couch : 1996 : Beate Lohser & Peter M Newton

Presents a comprehensive narrative accounts and discussion of the only existing full-length reports written by analysands of Freud. These self-reports were produced by the following individuals: Abram Rardiner, analyzed in 1921-1922, a young American psychiatrist who would be­ come an eminent social psychoanalyst; the famous American Imagist poet Hilda Doolittle (whose nom de plume was H.D.), analyzed in 1933 and 1934; Joseph Wortis, analyzed in 1934, who, like Rardiner, was a young American psychiatrist but one who would travel a very different path, introducing electroconvulsive shock therapy to the United States; and two other, lesser-known, American psychiatrists, both enthusiastic Christians—John Dorsey, whom Freud analyzed in 1935 and 1936, and Smiley Blanton, whom Freud analyzed in 1929 and 1930 and then on three separate occasions for brief periods during the 1930s, finally termi­nating in 1938.  Published by The Guilford Press  1996.

These notes of the case were written down by Freud in the evening in a kind of shorthand, where Freud abbreviated certain words—like using ‘u’ for the word ‘und’.

The Strachey Translation from the Addendum:  Strachey only translated this one “Preliminary session”. Sessions 1‐7 were not translated by him. The sessions that followed session 7 were translated by him.  Strachey generally uses the past tense for what Freud writes in the present tense.

Carl Abel (25 November 1837 – 26 November 1906) was a German comparative philologist from Berlin who wrote Linguistic Essays in 1880. Abel also acted as Ilchester lecturer on comparative lexicography at the University of Oxford and as the Berlin correspondent of the Times and the Standard. His 400-page dictionary of Egyptian-Semitic-Indo-European roots appeared in 1886. His essay “On the antithetical meanings of primal words” (Ueber den Gegensinn der Urworte) was discussed by Sigmund Freud in an identically titled piece, which, in turn, was discussed by Jacques Derrida as a precursor to deconstruction’s semantic insights.[3] He also translated some of Shakespeare’s works into German

Note on Translation, July 2022

Sigmund Freud uses the term ‘angst’. This has been translated by James Strachey as ‘anxiety’. 

Translations from the internet:

Angst: anxiety; fear; fright; panic; terror; stuffiness; oppression; heaviness; sinking feeling

Angst → anxiety, fear, fright, dread

Angst → fear of failure, anxiety, anguish, dread, apprehension, fear, fright, trepidation, alarm

Jacques Lacan, who read Sigmund Freud in the original German, translates ‘angst’ from German into French as ‘l’angoisse’.

Cormac Gallagher & Adrian Price both translate ‘l’angoisse’ as ‘Anxiety’. This is a mistake. It is almost certain that Seminar X should be called, Of Anguish (de l’angoisse) – see http://www.lacanianworks.net/?p=12801 – & the references to ‘anxiety’ should be changed to ‘anguish’. The same is true of James Strachey’s translation.
