Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(4), 317–318. Reviews the book, Psychoanalysis and Contemporary Science: An Annual of Integrative and Interdisciplinary Studies, Vol. 5, 1976 edited by Theodore Shapiro (1977). This collection of papers is richly sprinkled with studies of nonpatient individuals and essentially normal functioning. The focus of the volume is broad and includes theory, development, interpretation, therapy, and adaptation. Individual papers appearing in one of the five sections clearly overlap other areas and alternative arrangements of the papers could be presented. The highlight of the volume, for this reviewer, is the extraordinary research of Kaufman and his impressive theoretical interpretations. This volume makes an important contribution to the socially relevant, intellectually exciting integration of analytic theory, clinical practice, and science.
