Freud Evaluated: The Completed Arc
foreword by Frederick Crews
"Although there may be a veritable torrent of books on Freud, there are few that can compare with this one in its historical breadth and detail and the comprehensiveness of its critique of Freudian theory . . . an important achievement. . . indispensable for any serious student of psychoanalytic theory."
-- Morris N. Eagle, "Contemporary Psychology"
"Macmillan's monumental book represents the culmination of two decades of research into the origins and validity of Freud's psychoanalytic ideas. In the course of a penetrating critique of Freud's methods and findings, Macmillan demonstrates convincingly just where Freud went wrong. "Freud Evaluated" provides a brilliant, rich, and indispensable contribution to the scientific appraisal of pscyhoanalysis."
