This book asks the question: What has become of Freud’s major discoveries and hypotheses in the light of nearly a century of subsequent research?

It ranges from the flowering of the modern psychological novel to anthropologists’ hypotheses about child-rearing practices as predictors of the severity of initiation rites. Why, then, a book that seeks to assess the immeasurable outcome of Freud’s work?
