This fundamental text fully describes Reich's medical and scientific work on the living organism—from his first efforts at the Medical School of the University of Vienna in 1919 to the laboratory experiments in Oslo in 1939, which revealed the existence of a radiating biological energy, or orgone energy.

The subject of "sexuality" is basic to this work, and Reich shows clearly its importance for human life and its relevance in understanding the social problems of our time.
