Autonomy and Integration

Heinz Kohut, M.D.

In the following I shall speak to you about a few topics which, at the end of a long period of work for the Association, appear to me to be of foremost importance to us: the concern with organizational reform; with the problem of lay analysis; and with the Association's responsibilities in the field of research.

Although it will not be possible for me to avoid giving expression to some personal views, it is not my intention here to uphold partisan positions concerning these issues. Instead, I shall try to evaluate them in their relationship to the question of the separation or the integration of the principal functions of our organization. These functions are: safeguarding the professional and social interests of the practicing analyst; transmitting knowledge and skill to the next generation; and promoting the acquisition of new knowledge.

The first topic currently in the focus of attention is organizational reform.
