Summary This book arose out of a struggle on the part of the author to resolve a distressing miscellany of psychological facts and theories into a workable synthesis. The result of such effort is classification of schools of psychology into (1) The Neurological (Classical or Scientific) School; (2) The Gestalt School with its topological orientation; (3) The Purposivist School; and (4) The Freudian School comprising (a) Freud, (b) Jung, (c) Adler, (d) Rank. The treatment accorded each school involves space commensurate with its importance and inclusion of the essentials. The book is rounded out with a chapter dealing with the congruities underlying all psychologies and a statement of the similarities and differences obtaining between these schools which are undergoing rapid evolutionary changes. -- Preface.
