FOREWORD

One reason for the violent opposition which greeted the early publications of Freud and his fellow psycho-analysts was that they held up a mirror before the human psyche, and the image there presented was an unflattering one. Mankind's collective self-esteem had only recently taken a hard knock, when Darwin shattered the age-old belief that we were made in God's image and were set apart from all the rest of the animal creation. At least, our grandfathers consoled themselves, homo sapiens is a rational being -- and then Freud demonstrated how precarious, and how fitful, is our rationality.

During the course of the twentieth century we have found it progressively easier (helped no doubt by world events of monumental irrationality) to concede that we are all too often swayed by emotion rather than by reason, and for the most part by emotions of which we ourselves are only imperfectly aware. As a result, we have come to recognize that the symptoms of neurotically ill patients are only an exaggeration of experiences common to us all, and hence that the unravelling of the psycho-dynamics of neurosis can teach us more about ourselves.

The desire for self-knowledge has undoubtedly attracted many of the general public to study works of popularization
