The Freudian Psychology and Veblen's Social Theory

Excerpt

The writer wishes to express his gratitude and appreciation to the following persons:

Professor Robert K. Merton, who afforded encouragement and numerous valuable suggestions when this study was initially worked out, and stimulated its writer to better efforts;

Professor Robert M. Maclver, Professor Robert S. Lynd and Doctor Abram Kardiner, all of whom gave the writer a conviction of the feasibility of the study at times when he was inclined to waver on this point;

Professor Joseph Dorfman, who was tolerant of an effort to put Veblen to what may well have appeared to him to be strange uses.

None of these persons is responsible for the defects or limitations of the study, and all are in one way or another responsible for some of whatever merits it may possess.

Without the personal help afforded by my wife, Betty Sancier Schneider, completion would have been greatly delayed.

The author makes grateful acknowledgment to the following publishers:

Viking Press for quotations from Aurel Kolnai, The War Against the West; Thorstein Veblen, The Place of Science in Modern Civilization, The Instinct of Workmanship, Essays in Our Changing Order, Imperial Germany and the Industrial Revolution, The Theory of the Leisure Class; George Allen & Unwin for quotations from Hermann Kantorowicz, The Spirit of British Policy and the Myth of the Encirclement of Germany; Sheed & Ward for quotations from Friedrich Wilhelm Foerster, Europe and the German Question; Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. for quotations from Sigmund Freud, Moses and Monotheism, tr. Katherine Jones . . .
