English summary: Freud's Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality is one of the grounding texts of 20th century European thinking. In it Freud develops a highly original theory of sexuality for which hysteria (and pathology in general) serves a model to understand human existence. Freud published this text seven times during his lifetime. The later editions tend to hide the revolutionary potential of his thinking. In this commentary we want to reconstruct this potential and in doing so it wants to make clear in what respect Freud's thinking remains a permanent challenge to contemporary psychoanalytic and psychiatric thinking. German description: In seinen Drei Abhandlungen zur Sexualtheorie von 1905 entwickelt Freud eine hochst originelle Theorie der Sexualitat, indem er u.a. die menschliche Existenz aus der Perspektive der Psychopathologie (Hysterie) versteht. Freud uberarbeitete den Text wahrend seiner Karriere vier Mal, wobei viele revolutionare Ansatze aus der Erstfassung von spateren Einsichten uberlagert wurden. In diesem Kommentar wird das ursprungliche Potenzial des Textes herausgearbeitet und in seiner Relevanz fur die gegenwartige psychoanalytische und psychiatrische Theoriebildung dargestellt.
