The relation between the anxiety neurosis and anxiety hysteria

Abstract

Discusses the relation between anxiety neuroses and anxiety hysteria. Freud coined the term "anxiety-hysteria' to denote phobias, whose psychological structure resembled that of ordinary hysterical symptoms, while anxiety-neurosis represents the normal physiological accompaniment of fear. However, psychical factors that play a chief part in the former are also to some extent operative in pure cases of the latter. The essential cause of all anxiety states consists in a lack of physical gratification of the libido; anxiety arises in the inborn fear-instinct; and exaggeration of its manifestations represents a defensive response to repressed sexual wishes. Physical factors are also contributory, but they alone cannot evoke an anxiety state. Physical factors are more prominent in anxiety neurosis. Concludes that anxiety-hysteria is a wider conception and anxiety neurosis may be one of its symptoms.
