Dear Dr. Szasz:

I have at last read your brilliant work "The Myth of Mental Illness" and am having much satisfaction in thinking about it and recommending it. I hope you will go on with this line of thinking and try to make it more clear, for instance, just what kind of game is being played by the depressive person and other classic psychotic types. It seems to me that you are excellently suited to pursue this inquiry.


John Dollard,
Professor Psychology
