The Reaction to Behaviourism and Refusal of Alternatives

  • Ray Holland
Chapter

Abstract

Personality theorists who opposed themselves to Freud because of what they regarded as his psychological bias could take up the aim of creating a more social definition of self, and find in this a clear goal which made relevant a body of knowledge and an area of research to occupy them for many years. In retrospect this work can be seen to have reinforced a dichotomy between person and society and to have brought about some reworking and attenuation of the original contributions by Freud; nevertheless, as a theme it unified one of the neo-Freudian groups, leading to a certain amount of genuinely interdisciplinary research between anthropology and psychoanalysis.
