British Psycho-Analytical Society

Anna Freud

First Quarter, 1930

January 15, 1930. Mr. Kapp: 'Some Aspects of Non-clinical Case-Material'. The full possibilities of psycho-analytical work outside therapeutic practice have not yet been exploited; a certain type of theoretical problem has hitherto been neglected owing to the limitations of the therapeutic field of study and method of work. It is suggested that the time has come when the method employed by the research worker should depart more radically from that used by the therapeutist. Examples given of particular problems which are of importance to the scientific mind.

February 5, 1930. Mrs. Klein: 'The Importance of Symbol-Formation in the Development of the Ego'. (Published in this JOURNAL, Vol. XI., Pt. 1.)

February 19, 1930. Dr. Zuckerman (London Zoological Society; guest of the British Psycho-Analytical Society): 'Social behaviour of Apes and Baboons'. After a brief physiological survey of rutting, the lecturer gave a summary of behaviouristic data bearing on the sexual habits of apes and baboons. He then showed what direct bearing the sexual instincts had on social behaviour, and in particular how sexual impulses were exploited to further the gratification of non-sexual aims. In the wild state no evidence could be found for the operation of psychic institutions corresponding to the super-ego. There did not appear to be any sign of psychic loss or trauma following the death of sexual objects or offspring.

March 5, 1930. Mrs. Riviere: An abstract of Freud's Civilization and its Discontents.

March 19, 1930.

a. Mr. James Strachey: 'Unconscious Factors in Reading'. Chief libidinal components in reading are: scoptophilia, anal erotism, and, above all, oral erotism; evidence from metaphors, from reading habits of the normal and from inhibitions of the neurotic. Two attitudes corresponding to two stages of oral phase. Especial importance of oral sadism: reading a symbolic form of coprophagy. The book a mother-symbol in which the author (father) has left defiling marks, these being then devoured and incorporated by the reader (son).

b. Miss Low: 'Reading and the Unconscious'. Illustrated from the case of a writer suffering from inhibition.
