The Significance of Psychiatry in our Time: Richard Sterba. Psychiatry, IV, 1941, pp. 511–513.

Martin Grotjahn

The vast and noble task which falls to psychiatrists may be summarized in the formula: humanization of the human mind. What Freud said about psychotherapy with regard to the single neurotic must be the slogan for the civilization of cultured mankind: 'Where Id was there shall Ego be'. What characterizes man is his ego, the central function of which is consciousness. In therapy with the person and, as a corollary, with all mankind, the id is diminished and the ego extended.
