How do Foulkes’ contribution 35 we explain the genesis of an optimistic model of human behaviour in the context of such destruction? This can be contrasted with Freud, whose experiences at roughly the same time, in roughly the same place, contributed a deep pessimism to his view of human conduct, a theme crystallised in Civilization and its Discontents (Freud 1930). What accounts, in Foulkes’ case, for the disparity between the events of external reality and his trusting vision of the therapeutic potential of the group?

This and other statements reveal that Foulkes felt he was fighting, if not losing, a lone battle against the psychoanalytic (and to some extent psychiatric) establishment. Not surprisingly, he felt compelled to argue the merits of group analysis forcefully: ‘You say that I advocate my own approach. But what else can I do? If I did not think it the right one, I would not adopt it’ (Foulkes 1964a, p. 121). We can sympathise with these statements, but none the less note that these difficult circumstances appear to have led Foulkes to evolve a largely one-sided model.

Among these, Malcolm Pines and Robin Skynner perhaps stand out both for their creative and far-reaching contributions and for the debt of gratitude to Foulkes they freely acknowledge in their many writings. The problem was that Foulkes’ greatest strengths were in some ways also his weaknesses and in the next section a more critical view is cast on some of his contributions. FOULKES’ FLAWED VISION Foulkes displays in much of his writing an overriding tendency to emphasise wholeness: he frequently speaks of the ‘total situation’, the ‘whole person’, the ‘group as a whole’.
