Passion of Youth is the latest of Reich's writings to appear posthumously, and it reveals that Reich's life, no less than his work, was provocative and instructive. In a reminiscence composed in 1919, "Childhood and Puberty," Reich tells of his earliest years, spent on a country estate in Bukovina. Wilhelm Reich, a native of Austria, was born in 1897. His many works include Listen, Little Man!, Character Analysis, and The Mass Psychology of Fascism.

Wilhelm Reich (1897-1957) was an Austrian psychoanalyst, who wrote such books as Character Analysis,The Mass Psychology of Fascism,The Function of the Orgasm: Sex-Economic Problems of Biological Energy (The Discovery of the Orgone, Vol. 1), etc. He died in prison, when the FDA objected to his sale of "orgone accumulators" and burned his writings.

This book was published in 1988; Trustee Mary Boyd Higgins wrote in the Preface, "In 1919, as a twenty-two-year-old medical student, Reich began to keep diaries and, during that same year, he wrote a recollection of his childhood and youth. Later, in 1937, he recalled his experiences in the Great War and his medical studies... These writings are now made available in order to dispel the myths given currency by the various biographies that have appeared since his death."

He recounts that when he was 4½ years old he listened to a coachman have sexual relations with his girlfriend, which "produced in me erotic sensations of enormous intensity." The next day he climbed into bed with his brother's nurse; "I did not receive a beating but was no longer allowed to sleep with the maid." (Pg. 6) He recalls, "The first time I went to a brothel, at age fifteen, I submitted to it like a test... Later I often thought back to the staggering intensity of this affect and could never explain how it had been possible that I, who had been having intercourse for three years, and quite regularly, could lose myself so completely..." (Pg. 42) He adds, "I worked like an ox during the day and lay around brothels at night... I realized that I could no longer live without a brothel." (Pg. 46)

Of the First World War, he observed, "We were simply prepared from childhood for subjugation to the ideology of the war machine. There was nothing fundamentally new about war; it was simply the test of the strength of the old authority... Only a few gave voice to their highly unpatriotic fear." (Pg. 60)

He notes, "Now that I have begun to think, I discover that another person might have arrived at essentially different results. 'Is there an unconscious?' I asked Otto. His reply: 'In a psychoanalytic sense, yes; in a philosophical sense, no!'" (Pg. 155)

He states, "my own experiences, my observations of myself and others, have led me to the conclusion that sexuality is the core around which all social life, as well as the inner spiritual life of the individual, revolves---whether the relationship to that core be direct or indirect." (Pg. 80) He notes in a diary entry, "What a role women play in my life!" (Pg. 116) He laments, "It is neurotic that I should want a woman, a womian of my own, for I cannot and will not be alone! To h___ with my activities, analytic, scientific, medical, and otherwise---if the irretrievable hours of youth are to slip by without a woman! I will start writing books when my mental and physical potency has evaporated in the arid wastelands of science!" (Pg. 164)

This compilation of Reich's early writings provide very illuminating glimpses into his life and later thought.

Wilhelm Reich was many things in his lifetime- a student of Freud, a political activist, a research scientist, and an inventor. His work was decades ahead of its time and is finally being rediscovered and reevaluated by the public. If, like me, you are interested in Reich and his work, you might want to check out a novel called We All Fall Down, by Brian Caldwell. it draws heavily on Reich's theories, particularly Listen Little Man and The Mass Psychology Of Facism. It's a great introduction to Reich's work and the entire novel draws heavily on his theory. It's very interesting watching an author explore his theories in a fictional setting. Well worth reading.
