Abstract [en]

 This essay seeks the political argument in An American Dilemma through a close reading of the chapters where Myrdal, in his social enginnering effort, combined a rudimentary psychoanalytic view of racism with a strong normative support of an American interpretation of Liberalism, expressed through the notion of an American Creed. The ambiguity of the staus of the Creed as both liberal notm and "imperative reality" for the psychoanalytic perspective will be critically discussed.
