Symbols of Transformation

Wulffen’s comprehensive account of sexual misdemeanours is not confined merely to criminal case histories but seeks to get at the psychological and social foundations of the offence.

Two hundred and fifty pages alone are devoted to sexual biology in general, sexual psychology, characterology, and pathology.

In the chapter on sexual psychology the author himself will surely deplore the absence of psychoanalytic view points.

The other chapters on criminology, being written by an experienced criminologist, are of great interest and very stimulating to the researcher in this field The illustrations are uniformly good, some of them of great psychological value.

For a future psychoanalytic investigation of this subject Wulffen’s book should be a most valuable source alongside the compilations of Pitaval. Carl Jung, CW 18, Page 397
