  1. nathan szajnberg, MD Says:

    This review revives the book.

    It also directs us to think about possibilities such as the free clinics for psychoanalysis to become a greater part of our society.

  2. Anthony Hamburger says Says:

    Freud’s attitude to the contribution that psychoanalysis was obliged to make to society was the inspiration behind our small clinical and training NGO , Ububele, being set up in a disadvantaged township in Johannesburg South Africa. Our mandate is to train lay counsellors and volunteers in psychoanalytically informed techniques and interventions.
    Our attention was drawn to this book by an analyst in Brookline Frances Lang. Too often Freud and psychoanalysis are critisized for their elitism. Danto’s book sets the record straight.
