Essays in Applied Psycho-Analysis: By Ernest Jones. (London: The Hogarth Press and Institute of Psycho-Analysis, 1951. Two volumes. International Psycho-Analytical Library, Nos. 40 and 41. Pp. 333 and 381. 21 s. each.)

Review by:
J. C. Flugel

These essays constitute a second and much enlarged edition of the book which appeared under the same title in 1923 and which was reviewed at some length in this Journal, 1924, 5, p. 373. One essay which appeared in the first edition (that on Hamlet) is omitted from the present one, having appeared in book form under the title Hamlet and Oedipus. The remaining twelve are included, with a few additional notes, though divided among the two volumes, the first of which bears the sub-title 'Miscellaneous Essays', while the second is devoted to 'Essays in Folklore and Religion'. There are in all twenty-four new essays dealing with a wide variety of subjects, some of which have not appeared in print before, while others have been published in a number of books and journals (seven of them in this Journal) in this and other countries. Their collection in the present new edition is an event of importance which undoubtedly provides a very valuable addition to the literature of applied psycho-analysis, for though these essays vary considerably in length and profundity of treatment, every one of them displays in greater or less degree the erudition and psychological penetration which we have long since learnt to expect from all Ernest Jones's writings.

The twenty-four new essays could be classified in various ways, but perhaps the most convenient division is into two main groups, those devoted to more or less specific problems, and those dealing with the more general problems of the relation of psycho-analysis to other approaches or other fields of study.
