In eight chapters, mostly reprints from medical journals in which each chapter had been published as a complete article, the author gives a real insight into Freudian psychology. The author does not merely show the results of Freud's influence—he is entirely submerged in the mental mechanisms of the latter's psychology. Irrespective of the fact that "Mental Mechanisms" contains the views of only one school, and that the youngest and most vehemently opposed, the book is worth reading. The author possesses the happy faculty of being able to restate his teacher's opinions in a more interesting and entertaining style than the teacher himself could bring to bear on the subject.
