Reply to “On Ferenczi: A Response”: Notes from Elasticity to the Confusion of Tongues and the Technical Dimensions of Ferenczi's Approach by B. William Brennan ThM MA LHMC

Peter T. Hoffer, Ph.D.

I AM PLEASED AND HONORED TO BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO RESPOND to B. William Brennan's response to my paper, “From Elasticity to the Confusion of Tongues: A Historical Commentary on the Technical Dimension of the Freud/Ferenczi Controversy,” which was published in the recent Ferenczi issue of Psychoanalytic Perspectives. I would like to state at the outset that I read Brennan's paper with keen interest and consider it a valuable complement to my paper, which, as a historical narrative, attempts to capture the spirit and some of the substance of a critical period in the relationship between Freud and Ferenczi—and in the history of psychoanalysis—as experienced by the principals in the controversy, along with some of their noteworthy colleagues. It was not my intention to favor one side or the other or to reach any definitive conclusions, but rather to let the principals express themselves, as much as possible in their own words, and to let history make the final determination as to the validity of their respective positions.
