In Langs’ primary focus on the interaction, in the short shrift he gives to the notion of transference neurosis (“for me that is a denial-based myth”) pointing to the traumatogenic behavior of the therapist, in his views on the seduction theory, Langs is move like Ferenczi than Freud. Is it technique or love? Technology or personology? Idea or feeling? Content or form? The choices between these pseudopolarities make up the body and soul of psychoanalysis, past and present. Langs’ effort is a challenging link in this historical chain. (52 pp.)
