The Existentialist Critique of Freud. The Crisis of Autonomy [Book Review]

Review of Metaphysics 31 (2):320-322 (1977)


As indicated by its subtitle, this examination of the existentialist critique of psychoanalysis is not only understood as a study in philosophical psychology; it is primarily intended to be a report about a phase of the recent history of European thought. Both Freud’s metapsychology and the existentialist philosophical and psychiatric opposition to the psychoanalytic philosophy of man are to be presented as expressions of the crisis of Continental rationalism.
