Horkheimer and orthodox Freudians had forged an informal alliance.
Orthodox Freudians were highly motivated enemies of Fromm and it was not possible for Horkheimer to work with psychoanalysts in the 1940s and 1950s if critical theory was associated with neo-Freudian psychoanalysis (McLaughlin, 1998).
Horkheimer was clearly concerned about presenting a certain image and a common Institute front in relation to orthodox Freudians who were alarmed at the criticisms of classical psychoanalytic theory presented in Fromm's work.
Orthodox Freudians disliked Fromm's criticisms of classical Freudian theory for theoretical reasons, but throughout the 1930s and 1940s Fromm was attacked by orthodox psychoanalysts also because he was not a medical doctor.
He helped to bury Freudian
therapy without sacrificing the whole of Freud's theories.
Not surprisingly then, Freudian
theory crept into the underlying assumptions of modern language usage.
On occasion, he even introduces common criticisms of Freudian ideas, such as the belief that Freudian theory is unscientific, or even worse, pseudo-science.
After covering the basics of Freudian theory, Gabriel presents an intriguing developmental typology of organizations based upon psychoanalytic theory.
Gabriel goes on to explain group dynamics, leadership, organizational culture, and even work in Freudian terms.
One of the strongest criticisms of a psychoanalytic interpretation is the implicit sexism in the Freudian model.
Riffaterre's notions underwrite Aurora's combative engagement with Freudian
criticism and reward a careful method with solid results.
