Fiftieth Anniversary Panel

History and Culture in Canadian Psychoanalysis

DR. LOWY: Bonjour Mesdames, Messieurs. J'ai le plaisir de vous souhaiter une chaleureuse bienvenue ce matin. Bien que la plupart de nos collègues ici soient des anglophones unilingues et que nos collègues francophones soient presque tous bilingues, le colloque ce matin se déroulera surtout, mais pas complètement en anglais. Mais au moins, j'invite tout le monde à s'exprimer dans leur langue préférée, c'est à dire présenter vos commentaires ou poser des questions ou en anglais ou en français. De plus, la tra-duction simultanée est disponible toujours. Servez-vous des écouteurs qui se trouvent au fond de la salle.

In 1910 in one of his papers on Leonardo da Vinci, Freud talked about history and pointed out that those countries and organizations that were weak and just starting out were never interested in history. However, once they established themselves they wanted to know where they came from and yearned to understand their roots. After 50 years, I think it is fair to say that the Canadian Psychoanalytic Society is indeed strong and we are interested in our roots. Now what we have today is a panel of people who, while they were not there personally at the very beginning, were very close to it, and therefore they can give us personal observations and reminiscences. Clearly it will not be possible in the 90 minutes that we have available to go into detail with the entire course from the precursors including Ernest Jones in 1909 up until Professor Charles Hanly having been elected president of the International. However, what we can do is touch on some highlights.
