Repression: The Evolution of a Psychoanalytic Concept from the 1890's to the 1990's

Barbara Pendleton Jones, Ph.D.


The author presents a summary of Freud's concept of repression, including modifications of the concept from 1894 to 1932. Several more recent treatments are examined, including those of Piaget; Rosenblatt and Thickstun; Galin; Kissin; Shapiro and Perry; Schwartz; the cognitive and experimental psychologists, including Kihlstrom and Erdelyi; the "connectionists"; and Edelman. Finally, the author delineates several different types of repression, outlining how the different models might apply to the different types of repression.
