Psychical Surgery: A brief Synopsis of the Analytical Method in the Treatment of mental and Psychical Disturbances. By Joseph Ralph, (Ralph, Los Angelos, California, 1920 Pp. 77.).

Review by:
E. J.

This little brochure gives a popular and brief, but clear and correct, account of the aim, practice and theory of the psycho-analytic method. The author has gone a long way in the understanding of psycho-analysis. The brochure was evidently written for purposes of propaganda and will doubtless succeed in its aim. We note one historical error: Breuer comes from Vienna, not Zurich (pp. 48, 49), being probably confounded with Bleuler.
