From the cover: “How much, if any, of Freudian theory is verifiable according to the usual criteria of scientific enquiry? Much work has been carried out to discover which parts of Freudian theory are verifiable and which insupportable by experiment. In this book Dr Kline surveys this vast body of work. He takes, one by one, the central postulates of Freudian psychology and discusses the experiments which have been performed to test them. He scrutinises each test, examines its methodology and its findings and weighs up its value. This is a book of great interest to those concerned with the method of psychological enquiry in general. To those particularly involved in Freud’s work it provides a highly detailed reference work of unique scope.”
