Abstract

Blum's original research with the Blacky test (see 23: 3650) has been re-analyzed. “No very drastic alterations” were found, but doubt was cast upon the research as a whole “in view of the shaky theoretical structure from which it was derived…. Before psychoanalysis… can be verified, its postulates and theorems must be dissected out…. Only then can one say without fear of contradiction that a given finding confirms or refutes the theory.” (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
