The Scientific Works of Lajos Székely

Anders Zachrisson

Lajos Székely was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1904. In October 1994, he turns 90, in Stockholm, Sweden.

Lajos Székely had his academic training in Budapest, where he graduated with a thesis on the epistemology of psychology in 1930. The same year he moved to Frankfurt am Main, where he worked with Wertheimer, and somewhat later to Heidelberg, working as a research psychologist at the Psychiatric Clinic of the University. The years 1933–36 he spent as a research psychologist in Amsterdam. From there, he moved to Leningrad (The Bechterew Neuropsychiatric Institute), and in 1938 to Finland, working for some time with Professor Kaila. In 1944, he settled with his family in Stockholm, where he completed his psychoanalytic training in 1946. He has been a practicing psychoanalyst since then.

In addition to his clinical work, Lajos Székely has contributed to the fields of psychology and psychoanalysis, with an extensive production. As a true researcher, he has been interested in a wide range of questions. His main focus of research has, however, been the psychology of thinking, especially the psychodynamics of creative thinking.

With respect and gratitude, The Scandinavian Psychoanalytic Review wants to mark the occasion of his anniversary by presenting a list of his scientific works.
