Selected WritingsSelected Writings
An Introduction to Orgonomy

Paperback $34.00

Published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux 1960

"This anthology of selected writings from the works of Wilhelm Reich was conceived as an introduction to orgonomy, and it is presented without editorial comment or interpretation in the simple belief that those who seek knowledge must go to its source."

       Mary Boyd Higgins,
       Wilhelm Reich Infant Trust
       (from the Foreword)

For readers unfamiliar with Wilhelm Reich's literature who are looking for that first book to read, we highly recommend Selected Writings An Introduction to Orgonomy. First published in 1960, this anthology was the first re-publishing of Wilhelm Reich's writings in America since the banning and burning of his literature by order of a 1954 Injunction from a U.S. Federal Court.

This selection of writings from the works of Wilhelm Reich is presented as an introduction to the science of Orgonomy, and includes key chapters from Ether, God and Devil, The Function of the Orgasm, Character Analysis, The Cancer Biopathy, Cosmic Superimposition, The Oranur Experiment, and The Murder of Christ, as well as articles from the Orgone Energy Bulletin.

This anthology is not intended to replace any of Reich's books, bulletins, and journals, but rather to serve as an introduction to them. It is hoped that these selections will enable the reader to follow the functional logic of Reich's body of work and to experience the excitement of a scientific legacy that extended for over a third of a century, culminating in Reich's discovery and practical applications of orgone energy.

Selected Writings also contains a brief biography of Reich, a concise chronology of Reich's scientific development, a glossary of terms from the science of Orgonomy, a bibliography of Reich's publications, Reich's Response to the Federal Court's Complaint for Injunction, and the Court's Decree of Injunction ordering the banning and destruction of Reich's publications.
