Arnold M. Cooper M.D. (1923-2011)

David Tuckett, Elizabeth L. Auchincloss and Peter Fonagy

Arnold M. Cooper, who died in early June last year, was the North American Editor of this Journal from 1993-2001. He had been Deputy Editor of the American Journal of Psychiatry, as well as Adjunct Professor of English Literature at Columbia University, Professor of Psychiatry at Cornell University, Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst at Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research, President of the American Psychoanalytic Association, Vice-President of the International Psychoanalytic Association and one of the leading intellectual figures in the field of psychoanalysis in the last quarter of the 20th century. In all, Cooper was an extraordinary man who contributed greatly to the International Journal of Psychoanalysis and to its success during that period. We will always be grateful for his benevolent and powerful intellectual and personal influence on our work and on us as people - gratitude which we believe many others with whom he worked or whom he mentored also share. Arnie was an extraordinarily intelligent man, but even more unusual was the way he used these powers to inspire love and respect to a degree that is difficult to convey with the written word. We will do our best.

In his many writings, Cooper addressed every aspect of psychoanalytic life including theory, clinical work, education, research, the relationship between psychoanalysis and neighbouring disciplines, and the institutional life of the profession.
