Ludwig Binswanger

The first congress after World War I for which, according to Jones (1953-7, Vol. 3, pp. 26-7), a neutral country seemed the obvious choice, gave Binswanger an opportunity to meet Freud again. He described his participation in this congress in his diary:

‘5 September [1920]. Went to The Hague in the morning. Afternoon at Ophuijsen's with Ferenczi, Jones, Reik etc., also there for dinner.

‘6 September. Morning in Leiden, hideous town, had to take the trouble to seek out the few attractions […]

‘7 September. […] Greeted Freud, he was slimmer and paler, but had the same expression. Then Maurits-Huis […]

‘9 September. Two days’ stressful doings at the congress. Lectures from 9.30 till 1 and 3 till 7. A fantastically busy and attentive company! Many lectures instructive, many one-sidedly narrowly analytical. Freud spoke today about dreams.1 He still has the old magic. At 9 this evening another private session which I skipped in order to be fresh for my lecture tomorrow. Fortunately I was on first and got a whole hour.

‘10 September. Lecture2 too difficult even here, but audience's attention good. An hour. Freud found it “very clear”. Afterwards ate with Freud and daughter [Anna], was particularly nice. Tomorrow last full day […]. This evening official dinner.’ (Tagebuch II, pp. 84-8)

Notes to "Sixth International Psychoanalytic Congress, 8 to 11 September 1920 in The Hague"

1 ‘Supplements to the Theory of Dreams(1920f).

2 The lecture was entitled ‘Psychoanalysis and Clinical Psychiatry’ (Binswanger 1920a). Binswanger had already given this lecture at Reichenau on 18 August 1920 and had sensed that it was too difficult for his audience. Cf. Diary II, p. 80.
