Consid erese, as it contributes psicopag.galeon.com to it, that Transpersonal psychology does not apostatize of other schools of thought as the psychoanalysis nor considers like opposite; the correct thing would be to say that it tries to go further on. For the tranpersonal vision, the developments of Freud have been of fundamental was worth in the development of psychological science when including the idea of the inconciente in a discipline that was tied the positivista rationalism.
