It is with deep sadness that the Board of Editors record the death of Dr. Victor H. Rosen on February 5, 1973. He was one of the founders of this Annual and the original editor-in-chief of the present volume. Dr. Rosen embodied as few others have the spirit that the Annual is striving for-an open, investigative, critical, yet sympathetic stance toward psychoanalysis. We shall miss his efforts on behalf of the Annual and especially his personal qualities of warmth and gentle kindliness. His posthumous paper, “The Nature of Verbal Interventions in Psychoanalysis,” is published here with a brief introduction by Dr. Theodore Shapiro of the Board.

In preparing Volume III the Editors continued to pursue their original goal of providing a forum for papers of psychoanalytic interest written by scholars and researchers from whatever discipline and employing whatever method is appropriate to their respective disciplines. The editors feel keenly the desire to provide a forum for forward-looking psychoanalytic thought, stimulated in part by the impetus for development in any live scientific endeavor, in part by the advances, some of them quite dramatic, in other more or less obviously related sciences.

In our view, psychoanalysis as a method of investigation provides insights into human feelings and motivations that are beyond the reach of any other investigative method, but as a science it cannot remain aloof from the findings and conceptualizations of other disciplines that have been, or may be, called upon to contribute to the study of the mind. In this volume, as in the previous ones, our aim was the publication of papers from a variety of sources that not only reflect a concern for the further growth of psychoanalysis but also embody a high quality of research and scholarship. We believe that the papers presented here fulfill these criteria.
