Psychoanalysis: Science or Art? Science and Art. – by Rebecca Coleman Curtis

Published in The International Journal of Controversial Discussions.
Editor in Chief, A. Richards/Issue Ed., D. Kirsner.
Issue Two, August 2020, pp. 431-452.

In the present article, Rebecca Coleman Curtis takes up the longstanding question of whether psychoanalysis is a science or an art. The article appears in the newly created International Journal of Controversial Discussions (IJCD). Arnold Richards, the journal’s Editor-in-Chief and creator, describes the purpose of the IJCD in the following way: “Our intention is to create a forum for discussion and debate about controversial issues within psychoanalysis among colleagues with a variety of different approaches. It will offer a meeting place for analysts with diverging theoretical and clinical attitudes whose paths might otherwise not cross.”
