Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(10), 787. Robert R. Holt replies to Norma Hann's response (see record 2006-06387-094) to his review (see record 2006-06392-007) of her book, Coping and Defending: Processes of Self-Environment Organization (1977). Holt acknowledges that he overlooked Haan's definition of structure and misstated Haan's aim in his review. However, that still dones not help him understand her regrettably murky theoretical writing. Possibly he would have grasped her points better if he had had more than a moderate familiarity with Piaget, a slight acquaintance with Levi-Strauss, and none with Foucault or other structuralists; potential readers may take warning that they had best learn about structuralism elsewhere before tackling this book.
