ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the book "Fragments of an Analysis With Freud," by Joseph Wortis. Wortis has written a sympathetic study of Soviet psychiatry and subscribes to the orthodox Marxist perspectives, if perhaps not necessarily nor in every particular to the dominant Marxist party of the time. In the present book, there is the story of a depressingly complete failure upon the part of psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud to alter the course of the rigid but bright and conscientious young Marxist psychiatrist who came to him willingly to admit that nevertheless he was troubled by "unpleasant introspective thoughts."
