KIRKUS REVIEW

The Salmon Lectures in book form, as Freud's translator and leading expositor outlines the main facets of Freud's psychoanalytic contribution, and illustrates each with easework, partially derived from Brill's own medical experience. Psychotherapy up to Freud; Freud's realization of the limitations of hypnotism and substitution of analysis as a therapy; the classification of neuroses; use of dream interpretation as a technique; parsnois; the compulsion neurosis, the Oedipus complex, melancholia; the theory of the id, the ego and the superego; the last investigations into religion, superstition, taboo. In clear terms, with ample illustration, a summary of psychoanalysis for those who want a serious presentation thereof.
