The relation between the anxiety neurosis and anxiety hysteria

The relation between the anxiety neurosis and anxiety hysteria


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.
