Review by:
Edward E. Harkavy

The Academy of Psychoanalysis announces and demonstrates in this book that it is breaking into two parts, one wild and the other respectable. The President's preface comes out for 'dignified specialty' and against 'unstable and ambitious members', and the articles themselves alternate between these two groups. As one might expect, the wild members use Freud's psychodynamics to suit themselves; the respectables seem able to recall Freud's genetic hypothesis and the structural model based on it.

The schismatic contrast is mild at first, in the sociological section, but reaches real intensity in the psychoanalytic part.
