"The most pressing ills in our present-day civilization are our mental ills, our unsatisfactory or abnormal forms of thought, feeling, and action. But before we can proceed intelligently in the treatment of these ills, we must know why they occur. We must have a psychopathology before we can hope to have a mental hygiene or a rational therapeutics. But along what lines are we to proceed in the development of our psychopathology? Shall we follow in the footsteps of the psychoanalyst, adopting the psychoanalytic concepts and the psychoanalytic technique? There is no doubt that in psychoanalysis, as in every other doctrine or school of thought, there is some truth and some error. The only question is as to the essential soundness of its basic structure and of the foundation upon which it is built. If we believe that it is merely the details which are wrong, then the thing to do is to take up our abode in this "house that Freud built," making only such changes and additions to it from time to time as we find necessary or desirable. If, on the other hand, we decide that the foundation and framework of psychoanalysis are unsound, then the right course to pursue is to abandon it altogether and build an entirely new edifice upon an entirely different foundation. Our aim in this little volume is to inquire into the nature of the basic structure of psychoanalysis with a view to determining which of these two courses of action we should pursue"--Introduction.

This book brings together many of the most important contributions to dynamic and abnormal psychology and organizes them within a framework of concepts of general psychology, developing the concepts according to the data. The book is designed as a text for courses in abnormal psychology; as a supplementary and reference work for courses in personality, educational psychology, social psychology, and related fields, and for advanced workers; and as a survey for independent readers. Technical terms, many of which are used variously in the literature, I try to define according to the best usage; and I introduce new terms and definitions only where they seem needed. Many of the technical terms and their meanings are brought together for comparison in the Introduction to Terms which precedes the Index and Glossary; and practically all the terms are included in the Index and Glossary. Further materials, clinical, experimental, semantic, and theoretical, are suggested through the footnotes, the Further References at the ends of chapters, and the publications cited.
