Ferenczi: His Position in the Realm of Psychiatry

Jorge E. García Badaracco

This paper is aimed at placing the importance of Ferenczi's thinking in the wide field of psychiatry where Ferenczi has not been given any niche whatsoever. The author is in a position to approach topics that are fundamental for the work of both psychiatry and psychoanalysis. The Multifamily Psychoanalysis (MP), created by the author, not only allows professionals to counteract a current psychiatric trend aimed at eliminating the importance of subjectivity but MP also contributes to rescuing the thinking of Ferenczi, and to a better understanding of the Freud-Ferenczi controversy. It is the author's contention that Ferenczi embodies the very spirit of pioneers: no difficulties, however insurmountable, could ever stop him. He paved the way for further psychiatric research work, and his clinical contribution extended the realm of metapsychology.
