Theory of psychoanalytic technique by Karl A Menninger( Book )
52 editions published between 1958 and 1995 in English and held by 1,959 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book examines the essential dynamics of the interpersonal situation involved in a two-party contract or--to use the word preferred by Dr. Maxwell Gitelson--compact. The author applies these dynamic principles to the psychoanalytic treatment situation, pointing out the pressures and values which can be mobilized to favor communication by the patient to the listening therapist and the extent to which these are followed by gratifications and frustrations which alter the balance in such a way as to determine a progressive course. If the reader will note the topics of the chapters listed he will observe that the reactions of both patient and therapist to each other in the interactive process or compact are carried systematically and successively to a point where separation of the contractees is logical. This over-all view will permit us to examine such familiar phenomena as transference, regression, resistance, interpretation, and so on in a perspective which gives them a clearer meaning. It will be objected that this sharpness or clarity involves certain distortions or misrepresentations, dependent upon oversimplification. But this is the perennial dilemma of the teacher: the teaching of facts and figures versus the teaching of truth"--Introd. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)

The psychodynamics of abnormal behavior by J. F Brown( Book )
14 editions published in 1940 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the brief period of a half century psychopathology, the study of isolated symptoms collected into a sort of curiosity cabinet labeled "The Morbid and Abnormal," has changed into psychodynamics, the study of the integration and disintegration of the human personality. From the few incomplete descriptions of bizarre behavior which characterized the earlier writings on the subject, we have arrived today at the beginnings of a systematized dynamic science. To be sure we are only at the beginning, but I believe that the time has come to incorporate these systematic aspects in the textbook literature. It is one of the chief shortcomings of textbooks that they are seldom abreast of the times. I have tried to make this one up to date by adopting the organismic solution to the psychosomatic problem and by treating each behavior disorder systematically in terms of its cause, significance, and economy. So far as I know, no such treatment exists in the textbook literature. By taking the organismic viewpoint of the mind-body problem as a starting point, much space can be saved, which previously would have been spent in debating the organic versus the functional viewpoint. The structure of the book falls into five independent but closely related parts. A brief introductory section, "The Organismic Viewpoint," establishes the methodological basis of the book. The section that follows is "Symptomatology". The third section, "Theory of the Structure and Genesis of the Personality," attempts a presentation of contemporary psychoanalytic theory which should be adequate for the beginning student. Furthermore, it attempts to present the theory in all its aspects and with all its implications. The ensuing section called "Psychiatry" describes various facts about behavior disorders. The last section examines experimental psychopathology. The book is intended for students of psychology and premedical and medical students. It is based on notes for lectures, and its purpose is hence primarily didactic"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)

Classic study discusses number sequence and language and explores written numerals and computations in many cultures.
