Pierre Janet called Leonhard Schwartz, the author of this volume, his "best qualified pupil." Janet, himself a pupil of the great French psychological school founded by J. M. Charcot, expected Schwartz to continue his work, but Schwartz died shortly after the death of his beloved teacher, and before the publication of this book. This volume is the result of six years' work and is perhaps at best a most detailed description of Janet's dynamic psychology. The emphasis is heavily put on the psychiatric and neurological aspects, owing to the training and background of Schwartz. The interest of the American scholar will probably be limited in this contribution to the history of medical psychology.
