Summary note
"As was true of the earlier volumes in the Empirical Studies of Psychoanalytic Theories series, all of the contributors to the present volume have, through their research efforts, worked to keep psychoanalytic theory alive and consistent with modern scientific canon. Our goal is not to defend psychoanalytic constructs nor to focus only on those data that support psychodynamic hypotheses. Rather, we hope to test, to refine, and to extend psychoanalytic theory, allowing the data to lead us wherever they must. In this way, the Empirical Studies series can help to reinvigorate psychoanalytic theory and practice and can contribute to the ongoing effort to provide psychoanalysis with a rigorous empirical foundation"--Introduction.
