In Masochism in Modern Man (1941), Theodor Reik argues that patients who engage in self-punishing or provocative behavior do so in order to demonstrate their emotional fortitude, induce guilt in others, and achieve a sense of "victory through defeat."

Originally titled Aus Leiden Freuden. Masochismus und Gesellschaft.

Also published in English as Masochism in Sex and Society.
