'Repression in Pre-Freudian American Psychiatry.': Henry Alden Bunker.

Sylvan Keiser

The Psycho-analytic Quarterly, 1945, Vol. XIV, No. 4, pp. 469–478.

Dr. Bunker discusses a paper published in 1892 in the American Journal of Insanity by Charles W. Page, entitled 'The Adverse Consequences of Repression.' The quotations from the original paper show clearly that Dr. Page recognized in the utterances of a psychotic patient evidence of her release from repression of sexuality which had caused a conflict within her. Furthermore, Dr. Page clearly stated that everything the patient says derives from her own mental constellations. The author presents quotations from Page's article indicating an understanding of displacement, distortion and disguise. He then compares the concepts of repression by Freud and Page and although there are differences he finds the latter's interpretations worthy of tribute since they were well ahead of contemporary concepts.
