Review by:
Barry Opatow

This monograph makes manifest both the considerable strengths and the weaknesses of its premise: "that a dissertation on Freud could indeed be philosophy" (p. ix). Under the direction of the eminent logician, Hilary Putnam, Herzog carries through a trenchant and compelling conceptual analysis of Freud's metapsychology. I enjoyed it as an intellectual tour de force—a high-wire act that is best at surveying the fault lines in the groundwork of basic psychoanalytic theory.
