(1949). Psychoanalytic Quarterly, 18:508-510

Le Développement Psychique De L'Enfant Et De L'Adolescent (The Psychological Development of the Infant and the Adolescent): By Édouard Pichon. Second Edition. Paris: Masson & Cie., Editeurs; Librairie de l'Académie de Médecine, 1947. 240 pp.

Elisabeth R. Geleerd Author Information

The first edition of this book appeared in 1936; the author has since died. Few books on child psychiatry have been written by analysts; one of the better known is Neuroses in Adults and Children by O. Spurgeon English. Several psychoanalytically oriented works have been published, but they are collections of different topics by various authors, such as The Survey of Child Psychiatry which appeared in England, the book on Child Psychiatry edited by Pacella, the volumes of The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child, et al. One therefore welcomes a book written by an analyst, which attempts a systematic description of the normal development of the child and its deviations, be they neurotic, psychotic, or organic. Dr. Pichon has proved to be of a scholarly nature, but unfortunately he is familiar mostly with the French, Swiss and, to a limited extent, with the German literature. Nowhere in his book is any reference made to publications in English.

He was a crusader and he could not avoid using his book as a battlefield to attack authors with whom he did not agree. To this reviewer it is disturbing to find polemics midst general descriptions.
