Sigmund Freud

Berlin, April 27, 19041

Dear Sigmund:

I was very glad to hear from you, even though, by your own statement, your lines were not motivated by any emotional impulse. I was especially pleased about the news that you are gaining more recognition.

Bleuler is not unknown to me. I have retained a favorable memory of the nice study on color vision following acoustic impressions that he did many years ago with Lehmann. For the time being I shall not be able to write anything at all for the new journal (I have declined all other invitations also), because I have my hands full with the writing of my book. And until the last piece is brought to completion I cannot devote myself to other tasks.

That you must figure as the intellectual originator of Swoboda's book I really regret — not because the author does not have the slightest idea of where the problem of periods is located, nor because of the many factual errors, but rather because of the trait of deep dishonesty that runs through the book. You yourself intimate this by referring to Gattel. I noticed it only when I read it more closely; otherwise my note thanking the author for sending me the book would have been written in a different tone. Swoboda did not once reveal the year in which he made his observations and in which he became acquainted with my book.
