Freud and Jung. Conflicts of Interpretation: By Robert S. Steele. Henley-on-Thames: Routledge & Kegan Paul. 1982. Pp. 390.

Review by:
M. Masud R. Khan

Of course the author, Robert Steele, is right: 'The hero is reborn, the ego is recentred.'

I think this is the first time I have received a book for reveiw from the editor, Dr Thomas Hayley, that is not printed, but photocopied. It is a curious book because the author cannot make up his mind on which side to vote. Dr Edward Glover wrote an astute criticism of Jungians in his book 'Freud or Jung' published in 1950, but since then Jungians have come closer to psychoanalysts, and psychoanalysts such as Winnicott, Fairbairn and above all Sutherland have been profoundly influenced by Jungian thinking.

To quote the author, 'We are born into a world of words'. Words are a human invention that both serves and betrays them. For example, Moses, Jesus, Mohammed: who is the real prophet? Each word speaks differently about each of them. So does the author of this book. But he has done a neat job of a very difficult task, which is matching black with red: Freud with Jung. Jung had the feeling for culture; Freud had the care for the individual. The author spells this out very neatly.
