Most widely held works by Wilhelm Reich
Character analysis by Wilhelm Reich( Book )

178 editions published between 1933 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 2,136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reich's classic work on the development and treatment of human character disorders, first published in 1933. As a young clinician in the 1920s, Wihelm Reich expanded psychoanalytic resistance into the more inclusive technique of character analysis, in which the sum total of typical character attitudes developed by an individual as a blocking against emotional excitations became the object of treatment. These encrusted attitudes functioned as an "armor," which Reich later found to exist simultaneously in chronic muscular spasms. Thus mind and body came together and character analysis opened the way to a biophysical approach to disease and the prevention of it

Sex-pol; essays, 1929-1934 by Wilhelm Reich( Book )

17 editions published between 1966 and 2014 in English and held by 762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the first complete translations of Wilhelm Reich's writings from his Marxist period. Reich, who died in 1957, had a career with a single goal: to find ways of relieving human suffering. And the same curiosity and courage that led him from medical school to join the early pioneers of Freudian psychoanalysis, and then to some of the most controversial work of this century--his development of the theory of the orgone--led him also, at one period of his life, to become a radical socialist. The renewed interest in Reich's Marxist writings, and particularly in his notions about sexual and political liberation, follows the radical critiques of Herbert Marcuse, Frantz Fanon and Paul Goodman, the political protest movements toward personal liberation in the present decade
The invasion of compulsory sex-morality by Wilhelm Reich( Book )

21 editions published between 1971 and 2013 in English and German and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of the invasion of compulsory sexual morality into human society was written in 1931 and now appears for the first time in the English language. It preceded "The Mass Psyhchology of Fascism" and "The Sexual Revolution" and was Reich's first step in approaching the answer to the problem of human mass neuroses. Growing out of his involvement with the crucial question of the origin of sexual suppression, this attempt to explain historically the problem of sexual disturbances and neuroses draws upon the ethnological works of Morgan, Engels and, in particular, Malinowski, whose remarkable studies of the sexual life and customs of the primitive people of the Trobriand Islands confirmed Reich's clinical discoveries
Reich speaks of Freud; Wilhelm Reich discusses his work and his relationship with Sigmund Freud by Wilhelm Reich( Book )

31 editions published between 1967 and 1997 in 4 languages and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The core of this book is a tape-recorded interview of Wilhelm Reich, conducted by a representative of the Sigmund Freud Archives, Inc. Published here for the first time, it is a profoundly human and an unusually candid document that supplies a long-awaited clarification of the relationship between Reich and Freud. Reich discusses the personally tragic but scientifically vital implications of his relationship with Sigmund Freud in a manner both simple and concise, placing the reader in a position to determine for himself what was at issue. The book has an extensive documentary supplement containing pertinent extracts from Reich's writings as well as previously unpublished material from his archives, including letters to Freud, Adler, Ferenczi, and others involved in the early struggles within psychoanalysis. It also includes documents revealing the unrelenting hostility of the psychoanalysts toward Reich
Listen, little man! by Wilhelm Reich( Book )

52 editions published between 1946 and 1999 in 6 languages and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Listen, Little Man! is a great physician's quiet talk to each one of us, the average human being, the Little Man. Written in 1946 in answer to the gossip and defamation that plagued his remarkable career, it tells how Reich watched, at first naively, then with amazement, and finally with horror, at what the Little Man does to himself; how he suffers and rebels; how he esteems his enemies and murders his friends; how, wherever he gains power as a "representative of the people," he misuses this power and makes it crueler than the power it has supplanted. Reich asks us to look honestly at ourselves and to assume responsibility for our lives and for the great untapped potential that lies in the depth of human nature
The murder of Christ : the emotional plague of mankind by Wilhelm Reich( Book )

58 editions published between 1953 and 2009 in 7 languages and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this profound and moving work, the scientist Wilhelm Reich explores the meaning of Christ's life and reveals the hidden, universal scourge that caused his agonizing death--The Emotional Plague of Mankind. Reich contends that man is faced with full responsibility for the murder of Christ all through the ages--for the murder of fellow human beings, no matter what the circumstances. Here is the blunt truth about people's true ways of being, acting and emotional reacting. Here, also, the lesson of the murder of Christ is applied to the contemporary social scene. The tragedy of Reich's own death points up the fact that the problems presented in THE MURDER OF CHRIST are acute problems of present-day society
La psychologie de masse du fascisme by Wilhelm Reich( Book )

100 editions published between 1933 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ether, God, and Devil. Cosmic superimposition by Wilhelm Reich( Book )

15 editions published between 1949 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Om menneskets forbindelse til cosmos
Early writings by Wilhelm Reich( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume marks the beginning of the publication in English of Reich's early writings. Volume One and the collections to follow will trace his scientific development from the psycho-analytical study of Ibsen's Peer Gynt, presented for membership in the Viennese Psychoanalytic Society (1920), to the crucial discovery of the bion (1938), which initiated his work in orgone biophysics and led to the discovery of cosmic orgone energy. In a foreword to this volume, Chester M. Raphael writes: "Viewing [Reich's] work retrospectively, it is easy to see the logic of its development from psychoanalysis to sex-economy and, finally, to orgone biophysics. Its continuity is so apparent that any tendency to fragment it or to ignore the relatedness of all his findings indicates a failure to comprehend its essence--the energy principal which unites all aspects of his work ... Reich's early writings ... are an integral part of the development that led to the discovery of orgone energy."
Children of the future : on the prevention of sexual pathology by Wilhelm Reich( Book )

8 editions published between 1983 and 2013 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translated by Derek and Inge JordanIn Children of the Future, Wilhelm Reich shows how disastrous the exclusion of genitality is to the young and its important influence on their development. In his 1932 work The Sexual Rights of Youth, published here in its revised form, Reich speaks in terms of what he sees as the real meaning of the sexual enlightenment of youth: it is not the mystery and dangers of procreation, but the essential nature of sexuality and the right of youth to genital gratification. Reich presents a new way of seeing the parental compulsion to teach. In other chapters, Reich examines attitudes toward infantile masturbation, the source of the human no, and special disturbances of the young. Reichs work is substantiated by his concrete observations and experiences with children, including case studies from the Orgonomic Infant Research Center
The discovery of the orgone by Wilhelm Reich( Book )

21 editions published between 1942 and 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

WR-- mysteries of the organism( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary-fiction film begins as an investigation into the life and work of controversial psychologist and philosopher Wilhelm Reich and then explodes into a free-form narrative of a beautiful young Slavic girl's sexual liberation. Banned upon its release in the director's homeland, this art-house smash is both whimsical and bold in its blending of politics and sexuality
The bioelectrical investigation of sexuality and anxiety by Wilhelm Reich( Book )

8 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looking back over the development of orgone biophysics, Reich wrote: "My experimental studies during the years 1934 to 1938 gradually and logically centered on a single basic problem: how deeply is the function of the orgasm rooted in biology'" The Bioelectrical Investigation of Sexuality and Anxiety is composed of three essential contributions from the period: "The Orgasm as an Electrophysiological Discharge," "Sexuality and Anxiety," and "The Bioelectrical Function of Sexuality and Anxiety," Reich's detailed report on the physiological experiments in which he sought proof for his orgasm theory. The Bioelectrical Investigation of Sexuality and Anxiety "can with good reason be understood as a logical continuation of my Character Analysis," Reich wrote. "It is the character analysis of the areas of biological functioning."
Genitality in the theory and therapy of neurosis by Wilhelm Reich( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and German and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cancer biopathy by Wilhelm Reich( Book )

16 editions published between 1948 and 1998 in 4 languages and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Shrinking Disease Due to Chronic Sexual Starvation What is cancer' Traditionally, medical science has thought of it as an invasive tumor arising spontaneously in an otherwise healthy organism. In contrast, Wilhelm Reich defines cancer not as a tumor--the tumor is merely a late manifestation of the disease--but as a systemic disease due to chronic thwarting of natural sexual functioning. In this radically different scientific investigation of a process that ends, literally, in the putrefaction of the living body due to chronic suffocation of the tissues, Reich has arrived at the conclusion that "cancer is the most significant somatic expression of the biophysiological effect of sexual stasis." If this is so, there is a far greater possibility for the prevention of cancer than for its treatment. The Cancer Biopathy is Volume II of The Discovery of the Orgone. Volume I is The Function of the Orgasm
The bion experiments on the origin of life by Wilhelm Reich( Book )
