Polka, Brayton. (2001). Depth Psychological Interpretation and the Bible: An Ontological Essay on Freud. Montreal: McGill-Queen’s University Press.
The book is a heavy, 397 page philosophical work that offers a sweeping critique of Freud’s metapsychology (focused primarily on the explanatory function of the father complex, the castration complex, and the pleasure principle) as internally contradictory to the presuppositions of Freud’s analytic practice. It also makes a cogent (though not highly elaborated) case for the Bible as the effective source of the therapeutic ideals implicit in Freud’s psycho-analytical protocol.
