Elementi Di Psicoanalisi: Edoardo Weiss. (Milano, Ulrico Hoepli, 1932, pag. xvi.–242, L. 12.)

Review by:
E. J.

This is the second edition, within eighteen months of the first, of a book which should have great success in Italy and conduce greatly to the spirit of knowledge of psycho-analysis in that country. It consists of five sections, cast in lecture form and presented with the skill and thorough knowledge which we should expect from Dr. Weiss. A glossary of twenty-six pages is published at the end in which a paragraph of description is given to each definition. We notice that the Italians, like the English, are unable to use the contraction of narcissism employed in German. Dr. Weiss has not adopted our word 'cathexis', but uses for it 'carica'. 'Repression' is translated as 'rimozione', and 'transference' by 'traslazione'.
