1.   Freud, Sigmund. A Religious Experience.—In this short article Freud relates an experience of having received a letter from an American physician who narrates an interesting religious conversion through an hallucinatory psychotic reaction and therefore urges Freud to become a Christian. The hallucinosis occurred when as a young student in the dissecting room he saw the body of a sweet faced old lady about to be

placed on the table. His instant revolt was “There is no God.” Then later he experienced the inner voice and his faith was reaffirmed. Freud utilizes the experience to point out the close relationship of the conversion phenomena with the activities of the Oedipus complex.

2.   Brown, J. W. The Plastic Arts.—The author, whose untimely death is announced in this same issue of the JOURNAL, here offers some reflections bearing on hisv life interest in painting and sculpture as illumined on psychoanalysis, of which he was an interested student. All of the plastic arts are incorporated in his title. He first sketches briefly the general conceptions historically from realistic representations through to symbolic affective aims. What produces the satisfying feelings in the various arrangements of forms and lines? He speaks of stability and vitality, of immutability, of completeness, and of strength, and offers illustrative material. What is true in simple outline is true for painting, he thinks. Design is primary. In sculpture, design again is primary, and stability and vitality are obtained in another manner. In architecture similar principles are involved. The author then passes to interpretation, in which he leans upon Sydon's Primitive Kunst von Psychoanalyse, from which fascinating work he borrows many illustrations and carries the thought from the primitive to the higher forms of the plastic arts. In sculpture the nude figure is definitely phallic; the various ellipses constituting the design in the “mandoila”—as in Correggio's Madonna, for instance, is clearly the womb and the genetic motives—are elaborated in a vast variety of ways. Ornamentation is like secondary elaboration or dramatization of the primary motives: Polyphallic symbolisms are only too frequent. The motive of the uncastrated mother is frequent and ingeniously carried out. It's function to allay castration anxiety is evident. Completeness is clearly related at times to anal erotic gratifications.
