The Unknown Self: a New Psychological Approach to the Problems of Life, with Special Reference to Disease

    Abstract

    THIS little volume has been translated with the object of introducing the point of view of Dr. Groddeck to English readers. It consists of a series of short papers written at different times and for different audiences, but all informed by the same spirit. He has sought to understand why people get ill, in order to help them to get well. Although in sympathy with, and an exponent of, the psycho-analytic theory, yet he cannot be located to any one school of thought or therapeutic practice. He is in line with the thinkers who, at various times, have arisen as rebels against an intellectual-ism that would interpret the whole human being on materialistic lines.

    The Unknown Self: a New Psychological Approach to the Problems of Life, with Special Reference to Disease.

    By Dr. Georg Groddeck. Pp. 207. (London: The C. W. Daniel Co., 1929.) 7s. 6d.net.
