Stephen Kramer

This is a thesis on orientation and is concerned with the methodology of psychotherapy. It is demonstrated that there is much unclear thinking about psychogenesis because of terminological barriers and that actual living matter is the stratum affected in psychiatric study. The mind is defined as the functional appreciation of meaningfulness or 'the sum of those brain activities in which symbolism occurs'. An excellent understanding of semantic and linguistic concepts is applied.

It is pointed out, in regard to therapy, that any agent directed from outside the patient can have no other mode of influence than an organic one. In short, words are received only as auditory impressions, and associative elaboration, which produces psychotherapeutic results, is carried on entirely within the brain of the individual being treated.
