Isserlin's contribution to the great, world-wide controversy as to Freud's actual contribution to psychotherapy is a complete outline of the subject based on the courses given since 1910 in the University of Munich. The author believes that the freudian contribution has been an actual one, but that it must not be permitted to depart too far from the basic facts of medicine. The book is divided into sections on suggestion, on mental hygiene, on analytic psychotherapy, and on psychotherapy as applied for the alleviation of special conditionals. The concluding chapter deals with the abnormal constitution and the value of psychotherapy in organic disturbances.
