[SEQ169a9]This paper was first published in a Hungarian translation (probably made by Ferenczi) in the Budapest medical periodical Gyógyászat, on March 30, 1919. The Hungarian title means literally: ‘Should psycho-analysis be taught at the University?’. The paper seems to have been one of a series, by different writers, dealing with reforms in medical education. It is likely that Freud wrote it in the autumn of 1918, at about the time of the Fifth International Psycho-Analytical Congress in Budapest. There was then a considerable agitation among the medical students at Budapest for the inclusion of psycho-analysis in their curriculum. In March, 1919, when a Bolshevik government took temporary control in Hungary, Ferenczi was in fact installed as Professor of Psycho-Analysis at the University.—The rediscovery of the paper is due to the energy of Dr. Ludovico Rosenthal of Buenos Aires, and we are indebted to him for putting a photostat of the original publication at our disposal.
