Clara Thompson

The emphasis is placed on psycho-analysis as a scientific method. It has reduced many concepts to certain definite laws and has made clear the determination of mental processes. The relation of psychoanalysis to psychiatry is considered most important because it has developed understanding of the purpose of abnormal mental functioning.

The improvements in training of present day analysts are discussed, and in suggestions for future advance it is pointed out that practical therapeutic application of analysis to large masses of people is necessary, that the constant analytic study of the analyst's life is important, that further study of the structure of the ego gives the best promise of further understanding and progress.
