Burying Freud

[ Burying Freud Homepage | Freud's Seduction Theory Homepage ]

I cannot say that I am acquainted with Erwin, but the claim that elements of Freudian theory have no empirical support is highly problematical. Fisher and Greenberg's (1985) two books, THE SCIENTIFIC CREDIBILITY OF FREUD'S THEORIES AND THERAPY, and THE SCIENTIFIC EVALUATION OF FREUD'S THEORIES AND THERAPY serve well to accent this point. In the first book, the author's collected a vast array of studies, published and unpublished works, dissertations, thesis, in order to evaluate theory. In the second book, a variety of authors contributed chapters on experiments designed to test psychoanalytic theory. Needless to say some findings confirmed and refuted Freudian claims.
