        Zur Auffasung der Aphasien

      Franz Deuticke Leipzig: Franz Deuticke, 1891. No Dust Jacket. Freud's Rare First Book Freud, Sigmund (1856-1939). Zur Auffasung der Aphasien. 8vo. [4] 107 [1]pp. Leipzig & Vienna: Deuticke, 1891. Modern cloth. Light browning, small ink & perforated library stamps on title, but very good. Library bookplate. First Edition. Freud's treatise on aphasia, his first book, was little known or appreciated by contemporary neurologists, but Freud always regarded it as the most significant of his neurological writings. Freud was the first to criticize the foundations of the Wernicke-Lichtheim theory of aphasia, which held that losses of function in aphasia were caused by lesions to anatomically circumscribed centers corresponding to the various functions in language. Freud demonstrated that this concept led to localization schemes of labyrinthine complexity and did not fit with specific case studies; it was thus necessary to assume that the cerebral areas involved in language were less circumscribed.
