Review by:
Sydney Smith, Ph.D.

Freud's legacy seems to have become a never ending flow of the printed word. Writers continue to pour out their ideas: some write in the form of essays, others attempt to discover hidden mysteries behind Freud's statements, others find it necessary to belittle Freud, attacking him from every side, and still others want to delve into his personal life to find some terrible aberration that would account for his preoccupation with sex. The efforts in this direction are never ending, but such is the price of genius. There are those who need to be close to such a dominant figure, and others, operating from their smaller minds, who would like to pull Freud off his pedestal.

In this group of authors, however, Stepansky has made a good selection of a number of well-known analysts who have for the most part arrived at interesting and useful understandings.
