Foundations of Psychoanalysis (Pittsburgh Series in Philosophy and History of Science)
- A Philosophical Critique
Beskrivelse: This study is a philosophical critique of the foundations of Sigmund Freuds psychoanalysis. As such, it also takes cognizance of his claim that psychoanalysis has the credentials of a natural science. It shows that the reasoning on which Freud rested the major hypotheses of his edifice was fundamentally flawed, even if the probity of the clinical observations he adduced were not in question. Moreover, far from deserving to be taken at face value, clinical data from the psychoanalytic treatment setting are themselves epistemically quite suspect.
