The standing of psychoanalysis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

5 Scopus citations


B. A. Farrell [1981] tries to elucidate some of the rational considerations that determine the standing and value of psychoanalysis. He is sceptical about much of the positive evidence, but he also tries to provide some support for Freudian doctrines. I examine his supporting arguments and try to show that they have serious weaknesses.
