On a fait de ce gros ouvrage à peine feuilleté un "brûlot contre los angeles psychanalyse".

Avec "l'analyse psychologique" de Pierre Janet, un philosophe doublé d'un psychologue clinicien pillé, insulté et sali par Freud ; avec le "freudo-marxisme" de Wilhelm Reich persécuté par les freudiens et les marxistes ; avec los angeles "psychologie concrète" de Georges Politzer, philosophe communiste et résistant fusillé par les nazis ; avec l. a. "psychanalyse existentielle" de Sartre, retrouvons l. a. voie du matérialisme psychique contre l'idéalisme de l'inconscient freudien ; restaurons le réel concret contre le déni freudien de l'histoire ; inscrivons los angeles psychanalyse dans une logique progressiste contre le pessimisme freudien ontologiquement conservateur ; réhabilitons le corps immanent contre l. a. parapsychologie viennoise. Cet titanic chantier exige un "intellectuel collectif". ce livre pourrait en être le manifeste..."M. O.
