Martin Grotjahn

The 'existential synthesis' of a young Viennese morphine addict culminated in the 'discovery of the patient's hierarchy of values; so his eyes opened to the recognition that the values of selflessness are higher than the values of selfishness; and the values of love higher than the values of individual rights. He begins to understand that for him the morphine was the denial of love.' Nothing is known about the patient after his discharge from the hospital. The paper never leaves the level of a sentimental newspaper report. Truly remarkable is Caruso's neo-German verbiage; to illustrate: Psychoanalysis has to be replaced by '…ein Bekenntnis zu einem wertgebundenen Daseinsentwurf'.
