With topic headings such as psychosomatic medicine, Freud and Jung, Americanization of the unconscious, illness and artistic creativity, this symposium for laymen indicates the degree to which psychiatry has permeated medicine, literature, religion, child development, and morals. Authoritative, well-written, and eclectic, the book leaves readers perplexed, uncomfortable, stimulated.
