Review by:
J. Samuel Chase

Man and Mind is a collection of theoretical and clinical papers by Jeanne Lampl-de Groot, the prominent Dutch psychoanalyst and last survivor of Freud's era. Twenty years ago on the occasion of the author's seventieth birthday her writings were collected and published in The Development of the Mind (1965). Because Lampl-de Groot has written nineteen more articles in the ensuing two decades, her friends and students at the Amsterdam Psychoanalytic Institute have aided in publishing this updated collection of her papers.

Man and Mind incorporates the author's scientific writings from 1927 to 1985. Of the forty seven papers, most have already been published in psychoanalytic journals and/or in The Development of the Mind and in other books. Only nine of the papers were previously unpublished in the English language. The papers are presented in chronological order and largely in their original form. The majority of the papers are on theoretical subjects, with a smaller number of clinical papers, and papers on topics related to psychoanalytic training and development of psychoanalysis.

This is truly an impressive body of work. Not only are there numerous important theoretical contributions to the field written with luicid simplicity, but the collection offers the reader a rare opportunity to trace the development of psychoanalytic thought over the past sixty years. Lampl-de Groot consistently adheres to fundamental psychoanalytic theoretical ideas set forth by Freud with drive theory always at the centre.
