Abstract

The concept of "information" in the sense of an interdisciplinary scientific approach involving neurophysiology, neuropsychology, and neurocybernetics is to replace that of "psychic energy." In this way psychic phenomena are conceived in terms of a natural and biological substratum. Originally this was Freud's intention but this was set aside by the anthropoanalytical development of psychoanalysis. The concept of "information" involves a different approach to psychodynamics; it conceives of energy in terms of drives, ego development, mechanisms of defense, and traits of personality.
