What is Psychoanalysis Now?

N. Treurniet

Dear Sir,

Owing to a regretful oversight on my part, the following references to Gregorio Kohon's 'Introduction' to the book he edited, The British School of Psychoanalysis—The Independent Tradition, were unacknowledged in my article, 'What is psychoanalysis now?' (Int. J. Psychoanal., 1993, 74: 873–891).
