Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association. IV, 1956: Freud Centenary Celebration of the American Psychoanalytic Association. Pp. 582-643.

The main part of this issue is devoted to the Freud Centenary Celebration in the hope of retaining the spirit of the celebration and the deep impression made on all of the great scope of Freud's work, and the great breadth of the man. The celebration began with opening remarks by Dr. Maxwell Gitelson, President of the American Psychoanalytic Association, and by Dr. Bertram D. Lewin, Chairman of the Freud Centenary Committee. The Freud Centenary exhibit included many of Freud's original manuscripts and documents; exhibits to show the very widespread effect of his ideas on the world; all known 'Works of Art Portraying Freud'; and many exhibits concerning his life and his personal interests. The many who made this Freud Centenary possible are given credit.

Dr. Robert Waelder, speaking on Freud and the History of Science, described the longstanding separation between science and the humanities, and how Freud bridged this separation. Dr. Karl Menninger, discussing Freud and American psychiatry, spoke of the interaction between psychoanalysis and the thinking of some American psychiatrists; psychoanalysis produced a spirit of interest and hopefulness in understanding and treating mental illness. Dr. Ernest Jones spoke on Our Attitude Toward Greatness, saying that Freud's great scientific achievement is unique, not only because of its subject matter but also in its loneliness and in the greatness of the resistance it aroused. Jones delineates the general qualities of greatness which Freud met so well, and then defines our attitudes toward greatness and some of the pitfalls related to it.

The many other Freud Centenary celebrations held throughout the world are listed, and those at London, Frankfurt, and Berlin are described in some detail.
