W. C.M. Scott

Bernard Sachs. 'Bumke's Critique of Psycho-analysis'. Mental Hygiene, 1932, vol. XVI, p. 409.

Sachs writes quoting at length from Die Psychoanalyse, Eine Kritik (Berlin, Verlag Julius Springer, 1931, 75 pp.), by Oswald Bumke (Munich), briefly from McDougall, Strumpell, Bing, Ladd Franklin, and mentioning many other critics by name only. Sachs considers that the emphasis on sexual development should be most strongly criticised, but the formulations of the unconscious, the Oedipus complex, symbolism and the libido theory are each attacked separately. Bumke himself, although feeling very indebted to Freud, rejects his universal determinism thus: 'I would look for extenuating circumstances to account for forgetfulness and inattention'. The Oedipus problem is categorically denied and the only case material considered worth quoting in this connection is an example published by Stendhal before Freud's time.
