INDEX OF AUTHORS

neurotic heredity who slightly stabbed a woman with a penknife when on his 

way to a prostitute. 

 

[105] Kiernan appears to have been the first to suggest the bearing of 

these facts on sadism, which he would regard as the abnormal human form of 

phenomena which may be found at the very beginning of animal life, as, 

indeed, the survival or atavistic reappearance of a primitive sexual 

cannibalism. See his "Psychological Aspects of the Sexual Appetite," 

_Alienist and Neurologist_, April, 1891, and "Responsibility in Sexual 

Perversion," _Chicago Medical Recorder_, March, 1892. Penta has also 

independently developed the conception of the biological basis of sadism 

and other sexual perversions (_I Pervertimenti Sessuali_, 1893). It must 

be added that, as Remy de Gourmont points out (_Promenades 

Philosophiques_, 2d series, p. 273), this sexual cannibalism exerted by 

the female may have, primarily, no erotic significance: "She eats him 

because she is hungry and because when exhausted he is an easy prey." 

 

[106] In the chapter entitled "Le Vol Nuptial" of his charming book on the 

life of bees Maeterlinck has given an incomparable picture of the tragic 

courtship of these insects.
