Although the disciplines of psychoanalysis and psychology came into being almost simultaneously 100 years ago, they have developed independently, and their reciprocal influence has been less than optimal. Both disciplines may share the responsibility for this unfortunate and often counterproductive situation.

This book reflects serious efforts to build conceptual bridges between psychoanalysis and the relevant areas of psychological research, to identify historical and contemporary points of convergence and divergence, and to suggest directions for future research that might enrich both disciplines.
