Meetings of the Psychoanalytic Association of New York

Howard L. Schwartz

DISCUSSION: Dr. Jan Frank emphasized the importance of anti-Semitism in Freud's struggle with official academic circles. Dr. Maurice Friend underscored the value and pertinence of a historical orientation in approaching the new developments in psychoanalytic education and practice. He warned that the expectation of omniscience by either student or teacher will always result in anxiety and difficulty. Dr. William Niederland reminded the audience that an analyst's search for truth had to be combined with a commitment to the health of the patient. Dr. Robert Levitt and Dr. George Wiedeman both raised questions bearing on present trends in American psychoanalysis and their relation to Freud's earlier experiences. At the conclusion, Dr. Shengold agreed that Freud's oedipal conflict did not explain all of his conflicts over the university and that the quest for truth was not necessarily a fantasy of omniscience.
