ON FREUD'S “GROUP PSYCHOLOGY AND THE ANALYSIS OF THE EGO.” Edited by Ethel Spector Person for the International Psychoanalytical Association's Contemporary Freud: Turning Points and Critical Issues. Hillsdale, NJ: Analytic Press, 2001. 184 pp.

Review by:
Thomas Acklin

This issue of the International Psychoanalytical Association Monograph Series considers Freud's “Group Psychology,” which the editor, Ethel Spector Person, feels “does a half-turn, if not a whole new turn, in Freud's thinking” (p. xiii). John Kerr offers excerpts from the text as well as a contextualizing exegesis, particularly noting points of agreement and difference between Freud and his contemporaries, such as William McDougall and Gustav LeBon. The central question of “Group Psychology” is the relation between the individual and the leader of the group, and how this affects other group members.
