Norman Reider

The first part of Jekels' paper is a demonstration with the use of case material of the thesis that basic freudian concepts are absolutely necessary for an understanding of what goes on in patients, that Horney's rejection of these concepts offers nothing new or valuable, and that her revisions of theory are incorrect.

The second part of the paper deals with the methodological approach to Horney's 'sociological outlook'. Jekels propounds a syllogism more or less as follows: Horney's philosophical basis is dialectical materialism; dialectical materialism is an unscientific approach to psychoanalytic problems; therefore, Horney is wrong. The two premises of this syllogism are of very dubious substance and accuracy; the conclusion is correct, but for sounder reasons than those given by Jekels.
