Freud and his Time: By Fritz Wittels, M.D. New York: Liveright Publishing Corp., 1931. Reprinted 1948. 451 pp.

Review by:
Henry Himmell

This interesting book covers a wide range of human experience, and Dr. Wittels has written it with the sure hand of a master showing evidence of great erudition and a comprehensive interest in the cultural and psychological activities of mankind. Dr. Wittels is very much at home with Freud whose genius he seeks to explore.

While the chapters on philosophy are thorough, the explanations appear to be conventional and not particularly penetrating in the light of psychoanalysis. In the chapters on The Child, Criminal Law, and Art, Dr. Wittels presents his interpretations fully, within the discipline of experience, and makes a vital contribution to the understanding of these fundamental problems.
