Sample text

There have been advances and retreats which certainly cannot be explained merely in terms of a history of ideas. The fluctuations in this struggle are dependent on complicated historical conditions. They can be understood only through the study of the society in which the struggle takes place and of the conflicting interests of its various groups. That the history of medical psychology is no exception to this rule can be seen from the interesting book by Zilboorg and Henry (1636). Psychoanalysis represents in this struggle a definite step toward the aim of scientific thinking in psychology—away from the magical.

This is a thought, or precedent, about the nature of the integration of advances well worth watching throughout later years. It enunciates a principle to be followed. Freud’s final small compendium of basic psychoanalytic discoveries, started the year before his death, was never quite completed. It was finished by his German editors and published posthumously in 1940 as Freud’s own Outline of Psychoanalysis. His aim in this slender book was “to bring together the doctrines of psychoanalysis and to state them … dogmatically—in the most concise form and in the most positive terms.

They are even of the erroneous opinion that the demonstration of the importance of cultural influences contradicts any instinct theory. Freud’s own writings contain, essentially, descriptions of how instinctual attitudes, objects, and aims are changed under the influence of experiences. Thus it is absurd to be of the opinion that the proof of the existence of this influence contradicts Freud. We agree with Zilboorg that it is not difficult to find in all such “culturistic” deviations a distorted return to magical thinking and to the contrast of body and soul (1637).
