This chapter reveals how mistaken Freudocentric writers have been who suggest that Sigmund Freud's colleagues recognized the special characteristics and implications of psychoanalysis. It discusses the landscape that made Freud's rise to prominence after 1909 possible. Hugo Münsterberg published a major book on psychotherapy in 1909. Münsterberg, Morton Prince, and August Forel argued for a unified, international discipline of psychotherapy. Prince emphasized that certain general principles governed the field of psychotherapy. 1909 witnessed the first translation into English of a book considered to be psychoanalytic, though the work was not one of Freud's, but Carl Jung's The Psychology of Dementia Praecox.

Keywords:   psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, Sigmund Freud, Hugo Münsterberg, Morton Prince, August Forel, Carl Jung, Eric Caplan, United States
