The author of this volume is one of the lesser known but nonetheless intense students of the problems of human behavior. For many years he has been conducting, in as scientific a fashion as possible, a small laboratory in New York, where he is attempting to demonstrate—apparently with some degree of success—the fact that no single school of psychoanalysis or of its near relatives is entirely satisfactory. In a previous work Burrow showed that the domination of the analyst over the patient was anomalous and that for therapeutic and investigative purposes the relationship might well be reversed or, better still, that there should be no domination by either. This particular type of psychoanalysis he calls phyloanalysis, because it is carried on with a number of individuals who are coordinate in analyzing one another in order to attempt to show racial (in the larger sense of the human race) tendencies.
