    The Foundations of Psychoanalysis: A Philosophical Critique. Adolf Grünbaum.Morris N. Eagle - 1986 - Philosophy of Science 53 (1):65-88.
    This book consists thematically of three broad sections: a lengthy introduction in which Grünbaum critically assesses the hermeneutic construal of psychoanalysis, as represented in the work of Habermas, G. S. Klein, and Ricoeur; a critical examination of Popper's assessment of both psychoanalysis and inductivism; and a logical analysis of core psychoanalytic ideas that constitute the foundation for much of psychoanalytic theory. This last section is, in my view, the heart of the book and therefore, it is that section on which (...)

  7. Does a Philosophical Grounding in an Existential Ontology Make for a Better Psychotherapist?Morris N. Eagle - 2015 - Philosophy, Psychiatry, and Psychology 22 (2):121-124.
    Let me begin by summarizing my understanding of some of Hersch’s main points. He proposes 1) that “the use of existential themes and concepts” and “an existential ontology provides a more suitable philosophical grounding for psychotherapeutic theories and practices”; and 2) that “an existential version of the mental status examination… can provide us with a more in-depth understanding of…an individual’s experiential world”. According to Hersch, an existential perspective directs our attention to the existential guilt and anxiety “present inherently in the (...)

    Subjective experience: its fate in psychology, psychoanalysis and philosophy of mind.Morris N. Eagle - 2024 - New York, NY: Routledge.
    Morris N. Eagle explores the understanding and role of subjective experience in the disciplines of psychology, psychoanalysis, and philosophy of mind. Elaborating how different understandings of subjective experience give rise to very different theories of the nature of the mind, Eagle then explains how these shape clinical practices. In particular, Eagle addresses the strong tendency in the disciplines concerned with the nature of the mind to overlook the centrality of subjective experience in one's life, to view it with suspicion, and (...)

    Psychoanalytic Therapy as Health Care: Effectiveness and Economics in the 21st Century.Harriette Kaley, Morris N. Eagle & David Leo Wolitzky (eds.) - 1999 - Routledge.
    In _Psychoanalytic Therapy as Health Care_, a timely and trenchant consideration of the clash of values between managed care and psychoanalysis, contributors elaborate a thoughtful defense of the therapeutic necessity and social importance of contemporary psychoanalytic and psychodynamic approaches in the provision of mental health care. Part I begins with the question of where psychoanalytic treatments now stand in relation to health care; contributors offer explanations of the current state of affairs and consider possible directions of future developments. Part II (...)
