In the 1890s, philosophers widely discounted the possibility that psychology's claim to empirical truth had anything relevant to offer their field. Psychologists, such as the crazed and eccentric Otto Weinegger, often considered themselves philosophers. Until the publication of Martin Kursch's masterly work Psychologism, few philosophers, psychologists or psychoanalysts have attended to their originally unhappy, engagement. Kusch explores the origins of psychologism in Germany and fin de siecle Vienna by examining two major figures of twentieth century philosophy: Frege and Husserl. Kusch trenchantly and clearly reconstructs the debate between philosophy and psychoanalysis and the context in which it flourished.
