Sándor Ferenczi

Internationale Zeitschrift für Psychoanalyse

Herausgegeben von Prof. Dr. Sigm. Freud

Redigiert von Dr. M. Eitingon, Dr. S. Ferenczi und Dr. Sándor Radó

Baden-Baden, August 5, 1927

Dear Professor,

The sentence in your last letter, that you find me more reserved since America, is quite incomprehensible to me, and as far as I can judge, undeserved. On the contrary! My American experiences have, where possible, increased even more my interest in the cause of psychoanalysis (which I consider essentially to be a purely European cause). It is important for me to know from what symptoms you have drawn this conclusion! With regard to you, I don't feel the slightest reason to be more reserved; the only difference that exists between me and Eitingon is on the question of lay analysis, in which you and I do agree.

I passed on to Groddeck your admonition in the Nobel Prize question.— I am working here with five patients (five hours)). Dr. Amsden is a respectable person—naturally, quite unsuspecting.—I am sorry that the Liebman case doesn't have better prospects; but if I were in your position I wouldn't give up the struggle. Should the Liebmans come here, I would advise them to persist further, naturally, less hopefully. Is it true that you are preparing a work on fetishism?1

Received Fráulein Anna's letter with thanks; I am waiting for the critique of the manuscript I sent in.2

I send many kind regards and request a reply.

Yours truly,

Ferenczi
