Plagarized portion[edit]

The 'rat man' portion seems to be lifted from the NYTimes article linked. Should it be summarized or deleted? Dmenet (talk) 20:18, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

My suggestion would be that you summarize it, pending a thorough re-write (which it needs for more than one reason). I'll make a start at a re-write, but don't have much time right now... Pfistermeister (talk) 22:02, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Is 'Criticism' neutral?[edit]

Article currently reads: "After publishing the case notes in 1909, Freud wrote a letter to Carl Jung, indicating that the Rat Man's problems still remained,[1] despite Freud claiming in the case-history that "the patient's rat delirium had disappeared".[2]"

Checking the source (McGuire), F actually says: "he is facing life with courage and ability. The one point that still gives him trouble (father-complex and transference) has shown up clearly in my conversations". I am concerned that the article's current construction of this letter may shade WP:NOR and WP:NPOV, and propose hiving off discussion of the success of the treatment to a separate subsection and tagging it accordingly.
