The Future of Psycho-Analysis

Ernest Jones

The occasion on which we are met together, and the auspicious date chosen for our meeting, constitute eventful moments in the history of psycho-analysis. They are therefore the concern not of the Vienna Society alone but of the whole International Psycho-Analytical Association. This is suitably marked by my presence here in an official capacity and by the presence of distinguished analysts from other countries, from America, France, Czecho-Slovakia, Holland and Palestine.

This is not the first time that the Vienna Society has come together in the Berggasse. I must be one of the very few present who had the honour of taking part in more than one scientific meeting in the first home, not only of the Vienna Society, but of psycho-analysis altogether. It was our Master who then presided in person, as he still does in spirit, with the orderliness and simplicity so characteristic of him. Of the old guard that constituted the audience I think there are only four—Federn, Friedjung, Hitschmann and Steiner—still in your midst. Since those days the Vienna Society has suffered considerable losses in its membership. I will mention only the loss by death of Krauss, Silberer, Tausk; the loss by perhaps equally natural, though more unexpected, means of Adler, Rank, Stekel, Sadger; the loss by emigration of Helene Deutsch, Jekels, Sachs, Wittels.
