Review by:
D. B.

This book on Hypnosis is, I believe, the first of its kind in which an attempt is made to explain the phenomenology of hypnosis from the psycho-analytical point of view. And, furthermore, the authors seem to consider that the psycho-analytical explanation is the best. That the authors have a fairly sound knowledge of the principles of psycho-analysis is evident from their application of these principles for the explanation of the phenomena of hypnosis, but at times, however, one finds misconceptions of certain psycho-analytical theories, at others some confusion of terms, as, for instance, between ego-ideal and ideal ego. However, notwithstanding these defects the authors have produced a book on hypnosis which is far in advance of those numerous works which have preceded it.

From the point of view of treatment the authors say (p. 105): 'We consider this method (psycho-analysis) to be a royal remedy in the treatment of serious neurotic troubles, regardless of whether they result in organic symptoms or not.
