Reflections on the "foundations" of psychology and psychoanalysis

Joseph Kockelmans

pp. 527-545

In this essay I would like to examine the question of where psychology and psychoanalysis are to secure the basic concepts and "principles" which they must employ to interpret the human phenomena they try to examine and on the basis of which they are then able to conduct their psychotherapeutic practice most effectively; also, I would like to know how concretely the scientists working in these fields are to discover and articulate the "foundations" of their disciplines.
