Development of Freud's Conception of Anxiety: By Dr. A. C. Oerlemans. Amsterdam: North-Holland Publishing Co., 1949. 124 pp.

Review by:
Martin Grotjahn

The author takes the reader for a wild ride across the vast area of Freud's writings, his path strewn with uprooted quotations. The aim seems to be a critique of Freud's concept of anxiety in terms of a most naïve 'common-sense' psychology and terminology. The book is representative of much current thinking and writing here and abroad: devoid of clinical observations, formalistic and yet confused, without methodology but authoritarian in its dogmatic conclusions, limited in the study of sources and utterly inadequate even in the intent to understand the subject matter under discussion.
