Stimulated by Lindseth’s very interesting chapter, we feel encouraged to make some comments on the issue. Before concentrating on detailed aspects of Lindseth’s reconstruction of psychoanalysis, we should like to consider the meaning of the concept of science, which is not purely a matter of terminology.
