Review by:
M. D. Eder

The writer, distressed because people still go on confounding the work of Freud and Jung, has done well to give the general reader this abstract of Jung's analytical psychology. Considering the difficulties—Jung is really almost incomprehensible in tabloid form—Miss Corrie may be complimented on her success. In an abstract of this kind we must not expect to find any evidence for the statements made. Jung's famous four types still remain all unmoved by the criticism of the psycho-analyst that the introvert and extrovert represent an infantile clinging to the pleasure in retention or evacuation, that is, acquired traits which are relinquishable: a psychological type must be something fixed.

Much of the interpretation of dreams the writer instances as Jungian interpretation will be, of course, familiar in the daily work of the psycho-analyst, who, it is needless to say, is not negligent of the present movement. Jung most frequently, we are told, regards sexual images occurring in dreams as symbolic. This attitude, it is said, is 'more reasonable' than Freud's, because the 'urge of the creative principle is apt to be expressed by sexual symbols'. I suspect by 'more reasonable' is meant more pleasing to nice-minded people. Judging from this A.B.C., Jung's psychology has stood the shock of war extremely well; it remains just where it was in 1913.
