Repression: A unified theory of a will-o'-the-wisp

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (5):523-523 (2006)

Abstract

By conflating Freudian repression with thought suppression and memory reconstruction, Erdelyi defines repression so broadly that the concept loses its meaning. Worse, perhaps, he fails to provide any evidence that repression actually happens, and ignores evidence that it does not.
