Sabina Spielrein's writings explore the burning topics in the early days of psychoanalysis while providing insight into the culture of the time and her own personal struggles. After a comprehensive historical and biographical introduction to Spielrein by John Launer, The Essential Writings of Sabina Spielrein presents full-length English translations of her first three and most essential writings, offering deep insight into her brilliant and pioneering mind:

- The first unabridged English rendition of her medical dissertation of 1911, entitled On the Psychological Content of a Case of Schizophrenia (Dementia Praecox), with an afterword by Adrienne Harris

- A new, improved English translation of Spielrein's seminal essay of 1912, Destruction as the Cause of Becoming

- A faithful English rendition of her 1913 essay Contributions to Understanding a Child's Mind

The Essential Writings of Sabina Spielrein: Pioneer of Psychoanalysis presents a rich source of materials and inspiration to psychoanalysts, psychoanalytic psychotherapists and analytical psychologists, as well as scholars in the humanities and the behavioral sciences.
