In this chapter, the author focuses on the four books: the technique of psycho-analysis, psycho-analysis, dreams and the unconscious and the psychology of dress. Psychoanalysis had relatively recently attained public and medical attention, so it is understandable that it was distressing to those who were struggling to help it attain recognition as a science and a profession to have to deal with books that professed to be psychoanalytical but contained 'pernicious nonsense'. The author shows that the deficiencies that characterize these 'little manuals on psycho-analysis' should be made known. The obsessional neurosis too is far from being as peculiarly inaccessible to analysis as the author suggests; on the contrary, through psychoanalytic research it has become more comprehensible than hysteria. The psycho-analytic doctrine of the unconscious mind is explicitly, as it is throughout implicitly, completely set aside. Unconscious repression comes under the same ban.
