Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences. XXIV, 1988: The Reception of Freud by the British Press: General Interest and Literary Magazines, 1920-1925. Dean Rapp. Pp. 191-201.

A survey of forty-three general interest magazines shows that popularizing materials about psychoanalysis greatly increased in 1920, peaked in 1921, and declined thereafter. The press was more favorable to Freud than has been assumed, for a number of writers accepted his theory of the unconscious and readily acknowledged the curative powers of psychoanalysis. But there was also much hostility to Freud, particularly to his sexual theories. The press was therefore more favorable to Jung and Adler, but especially to the British depth psychologists, who de-emphasized sexuality while accepting the theory of a dynamic unconscious.
