Business Meeting

Anna Freud

Tuesday, July 30, 1929. Morning

The President, Dr. Eitingon, opened the Business Meeting with the following address:—

There is something which distinguishes our Congress from others, whether they be of a purely scientific nature or only have some affinity to science. It is true that our Congresses are organized by an Association whose object is not merely to promote the practical application of psycho-analysis, but to foster and develop it as a science; nevertheless, from the very beginning (and especially in the initial stages, but, just as plainly, now also), our Association has been of the nature of a community with a strong, inner, quite personal cohesion. The great increase in membership cannot obliterate this characteristic, for only as a community can the International Psycho-Analytical Association fulfil the mission which is the real meaning of its existence, namely, to ensure that psycho-analysis as a whole is conserved and developed in the face of prevailing tendencies to disintegrate it and embody the fragments into other contexts and subordinate them to other, often quite alien, points of view.
