The criminal, the judge, and the public; a psychological analysis by Franz Alexander( Book )

41 editions published between 1931 and 1962 in 3 languages and held by 955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A physician and a jurist endeavor in this book to utilize our psychoanalytical knowledge in an attempt to gain an understanding of the criminal personality. The authors are convinced that the criminal is as legitimate an object for psychological investigation as is the neurotic or the normal individual. Contrary to common presumption, psychoanalysis is not merely a method of treatment of mental disorders; it is hoped that the pages which follow will bring proof that in addition to being a method of treatment psychoanalysis is a scientific discipline which studies the workings of the human psychic apparatus as such; hence, any field of human knowledge that deals with psychic processes of man lies eo ipso within the scope of psychoanalytical investigation. The authors hope that their venture will serve at least as a stimulus toward the future development of a psychoanalytic criminology; thus, along with the newly developed psychoanalytic ethnology and pedagogy the teaching of Freud might be utilized for the understanding of yet another aspect of our civilization. These pages, therefore, do not solicit primarily the attention of the medical psychoanalyst but rather that of the medico-legal expert and the jurist. Too, since justice is usually dispensed under the valuable control of public opinion, this book is also addressed to the general public. The professional analyst will, therefore, find in this book little which is not of purely elementary nature. However, in dealing with such subjects as dream interpretation, slips of the tongue or action, symptom formation, etc., we view them from the particular angle of criminology. May we express the hope that those who devote themselves to psychoanalytical therapy only will find in this new angle of approach a stimulus for the development of a newer point of view. We collaborated for four years endeavoring to work out both the theoretical and practical aspects of the problem, our work consisting of the psychoanalytical study of criminal cases which were of medico-legal interest. Our first case was studied in 1925. This special study gave us, we believe, sufficient insight into the problem to warrant our theoretical constructions. We illustrated these by some especially striking criminal histories. In conclusion we consider briefly those psychosociological factors which throw some light on the emotional difficulties with which the practical application of our views would be beset."--Foreword

The psychoanalysis of the total personality; the application of Freud's theory of the ego to the neuroses by Franz Alexander( Book )

24 editions published between 1927 and 1970 in English and German and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In elaborating upon the relations of the id, ego and super-ego to the neuroses and the psychoses, Professor Freud came to the very significant conclusion that the neurosis represents a conflict between the ego and the id (the instinctive needs); the psychosis between the ego and the outer world; and the narcissistic neurosis a struggle between the ego and super-ego. The differentiation of the mental apparatus into an id, ego and super-ego thus resulted in a clearer understanding of the dynamic relations within the mind. For in the same work Professor Freud saw fit to revise his views of the instincts. Hitherto when one spoke of the instincts one always thought of hunger and love but, hand in hand with the elaborations of the ego theories, Professor Freud distinguished two classes of instincts, one of which is the erotic or sexual instinct and the other the death instinct, the representation of which is sadism. The former or life instinct comprises not only the uninhibited sexual instinct and the impulses of a sublimated or aim-inhibited nature derived from it, but also the self-preservation instincts, which also belong to the ego. The latter or the death instinct has for its task the reduction of organic matter to the inorganic state. To continue further with these fascinating theories and problems of the various ego organizations and the life and death instincts as manifested in the neuroses and psychoses would lead us into fields that belong to the author. Numerous papers have been written in the effort to further elucidate some of the problems stimulated by Professor Freud, but none in my opinion has accomplished the task as well as Dr. Alexander in the present volume. The very title of the book shows the author's ambitious undertaking. Like many of us, Dr. Alexander must have been fired with enthusiasm on reading the "Ego and the Id" but unlike most of us he ++
