Eugene Halpert Author Information

The proliferation of writings about Freud's patients appears to be never-ending. Patrick Mahony's book, the first in the History of Psychoanalysis Monograph Series edited by the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis, follows by only two years Karen Obholzer's book The Wolf-Man: Conversations with Freud's Patient—Sixty Years Later. Mahony himself refers to one hundred and fifty articles and books dealing with the Wolf-Man. As I noted in a review of Obholzer's book, "Most of this literature has been the work of analysts seeking to add factual information, in order to broaden the context for understanding the cases and/or to re-examine the cases from the vantage point of modern theory and technique. That these re-examinations have certain inherent difficulties has been pointed out by Anna Freud, who warned about the temptation, bred by familiarity with the case, 'to test the interpretations given, to probe beyond the conclusions drawn.'" Most authors, while recognizing the difficulties involved in re-examination of Freud's cases, have felt that enough of psychoanalytic value can be gained by re-evaluating them in the light of modern theory, technique, and observation to make the endeavor worthwhile. Patrick Mahony is one of these.
