Elasticity and Healing: A Moment of Renewal

Peter L. Rudnytsky, Ph.D., L.C.S.W.

The simultaneous celebration of the donation by Dr. Judith Dupont of the Ferenczi Archive to the London Freud Museum and of the launch of two new books on Ferenczi in the Karnac History of Psychoanalysis Series provides an occasion for reflection on the trauma inflicted on the psychoanalytic world by the Freud-Ferenczi rift and on the hope for renewal symbolized by Dr. Dupont's gift. Tribute is paid to Judith Dupont and to André Haynal for their contributions to preserving Ferenczi's legacy. It is argued that Freud bears responsibility for pathologizing those with whom he had intellectual disagreements, but that Ferenczi's concept of elasticity points the way to a reconciliation of Freud and Ferenczi that renders it no longer necessary to “rescue psychoanalysis from Freud.”
