Abstract
Historians have disputed excessive speculative claims made on behalf of psy choanalytic interpretations. As psychoanalytic theory evolved, theorists so ught to communicate the higher aspects of ego functioning which adapt our i nner world to outer realities. Roazen's article discusses the question of " what is a fact" within the context of the history of analysis. He does this through the examples of Eva Rosenfeld's correspondences which explore the nature of historiography itself.
