Dutch Psycho-Analytical Society

Adolph F. Meijer

January 14, 1922, at the Hague: Dr. J. Knappert described the work of a painter whom he had had under observation for some time. The paintings and drawings impressed him from the first as plastically-reproduced dreams. The analysis confirmed this; the productions proved to be actually disguised expressions of the painter's thoughts.

February 18, 1922, at Amsterdam: Dr. A. van der Chijs described the work of another painter whom he had treated for a considerable time. In this case also the drawings and paintings expressed very clearly the artist's conflicts. In drawing them he had usually no notion of their meaning, which only became clear to him after analysis.

Dr. van Ophuijsen communicated an analysis of an 'unintelligible' song which had been sent to him by a literary man. This song belonged to a collection kept by a society of total abstainers; it described the sexual act in symbolic terms of a nautical character.

Dr. J. Varendonck then gave an account of what he has called 'duplicative memory'. As a first example he mentioned Anna O., Breuer's well-known patient, who for a long period lived in the reminiscences of the preceding year. But in normal persons also this kind of repetition plays an important part; he himself often re-lived in thought experiences which he had gone through earlier in a similar situation—several examples of this were given.

March 25, 1922, at the Hague: The President called attention to the fact that five years had passed since the Society was founded; he then passed in review the events of this first lustrum and mentioned the earlier history of the movement and the fact that as long ago as August 1913 the founders of the Society had been in the habit of meeting for discussion at irregular intervals.

Dr. F. P. Muller gave a review of Freud's 'Jenseits des Lust-prinzips', which was followed by a lively discussion in which all the members present took part.
