An Analytical Biography of a Great Mind- by Edward J. Kempf


I have written Abraham Lincoln's Philosophy of Common Sense as a scientifically oriented analytical biography.  The relative estimations of the depth of formative impressions of his conditioning experiences on the development of his mind and personality are based on my experiences as a physician, specialized for fifty years in the allied disciplines of psychiatry, psychobiology, psychopathology and psychoanalysis.  My books Psychopathology and The Automatic Functions and the Personality and numerous papers and monographs on physiology of attitude and ego-organization, psychology of the family, holistic laws of life, laws of attitude, phylogeny and ontogeny of bisexual differentiation, comparative conditioned neuroses, basic biodynamics, and psychotherapeutics of neuroses and psychoses attest to my biodynamic understanding of human behavior.
