Sinopsis:

Freud's ideas have influenced almost every aspect of our lives, but have they been confirmed by experimental science? Did Freud say anything that was new or true? Has his influence been good or malign? To answer those questions, the author draws on his knowledge of recent psychological research and produces evidence indicating that we should now dismiss psychoanalysis as a pseudo-science. He explores the heroic myths Freud created about his own originality and the hostility he encountered - myths repeated to this day by credulous disciples. He argues that psychoanalysis, unlike behavioural therapy, is unsuccessful at curing neurotic patients and that Freudian theories about dream interpretation and the Oedipus complex, anal personalities and slips of the tongue, are, at best implausible.

About the Author:

Hans J. Eysenck (1916-1997) was professor of psychology at the University of London and the director of its psychological department at the Institute of Psychiatry. He was best known for his experimental research in the field of personality. Among his many books are Rebel with a Cause, Dimensions of Personality, The Dynamics of Anxiety and Hysteria, Intelligence, and Decline and Fall of the Freudian Empire.



Sybil B. G. Eysenck, wife of the late author Hans Eysenck, is co-director of Personality Investigations, Publications and Services (PIPS), an organization devoted to the promotion of the writings and research of Hans J. Eysenck. She is the co-author, with Hans Eysenck, of Psychoticism as a Dimension of Personality and Personality Structure and Measurement and the co-editor, with Donald Saklofske, of Individual Differences in Children and Adolescents.
