These articles are in general a criticism of various Freudian mechanisms which the author considers can be explained on his 'Conditioned Reflex' idea. (The author has written on this idea in the same Journal, February, 1920.)

The author's idea that psycho-analysis has been practised by the Catholic Church for twenty centuries (page 351) leads one to think that his knowledge of psycho-analysis must be of a very rudimentary character.

This is certainly an admission, if only a feeble one, considering that the author has apparently a very much simpler explanation at hand in his 'Conditioned Reflex'. A little practical experience in psycho-analysis according to the Freudian technique would probably cause the author to modify his views regarding the almost universal application of his method of explanation.
