The Place of the Dream in Clinical Psychoanalysis

Review by:
Sydney E. Pulver, M.D.

By Herbert F. Waldhorn. In: KRIS STUDY GROUP OF THE NEW YORK PSYCHOANALYTIC INSTITUTE, MONOGRAPH II, edited by Edward D. Joseph. New York: International Universities Press, 1967, pp. 52-106. $7.50.

The Manifest Content of the Dream. By Isador Bernstein and Bernard D. Fine. In: THE KRIS STUDY GROUP OF THE NEW YORK PSYCHOANALYTIC INSTITUTE, MONOGRAPH III, edited by Bernard D. Fine, Edward D. Joseph, and Herbert F. Waldhorn. New York: International Universities Press, 1969, pp. 59-113. $7.50.

When I first undertook this assignment, both the Editor and I thought it would be reasonable to combine the reviews of these reports, inasmuch as they were both Kris Monographs related to the dream. As it turns out, they have little in common. In retrospect, this is not surprising, since the study groups that generated them had different leaders, different members, and different topics. This, of course, has no bearing on the value of reviewing them, but another consideration did. Both reports are based on seminars that took place years ago—ten, in one case (Monograph II) and seventeen, in the other (Monograph III). Even by analytic standards, this is a long time, and I wondered, "Are they worth reviewing at this late date?" If they were classics, there would be no problem, but a quick reading indicated that they certainly are not classics.
