Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(5), 408–410. Reviews the book, Symbol and Neurosis: Selected Papers of Lawrence S. Kubie. Psychological Issues, Vol. II (No. 4): Monograph 44 edited by Herbert J. Schlesinger (1978). The voluminous writings of the late Lawrence Kubie–over 300 publications–contain many bulletins about the relevance of psychoanalysis to psychiatry, psychology, education, art, and the humanities. The references in the book contain merely 9 citations to Freud but 50 to Kubie cannot be without relevance to the kind of psychoanalytic spirit Kubie was. This book is profitable reading for a host of peripheral matters Kubie was a cogent diagnostician, and his distinctions between the psychoanalytic approach to diagnosis and other approaches–psychiatric, social-are superbly drawn.
