Editorial: The Sigmund Freud Centenary
Celebrations will take place this year in honour of the hundredth anniversary of Sigmund Freud's birth. Delegates of the International Psycho-Analytical Association, led by the Officers of the Association, will meet at Freud's last residence in London on Sunday, 6 May, to witness the unveiling of the London County Council's Commemorative Plaque. This ceremony will be preceded and followed by scientific and social events arranged by the British Psycho-Analytical Society. On Saturday, 5 May, Dr. Heinz Hartmann, President of the International Psycho-Analytical Association, will deliver an address entitled 'The Development of Freud's Ego Psychology', and on Sunday, 6 May, Dr. Ernest Jones, Honorary President of the International Psycho-Analytical Association, will deliver the Centenary Address of the Association.
The London Celebrations will be preceded by functions in the United States, more particularly at the Convention of the American Psychoanalytic Association in Chicago, 26-29 April. Dr. Ernest Jones will attend this convention as the guest of the Association and will speak on 'Our Attitude to Greatness', preceded by Dr. Robert Waelder, who will speak on 'Freud and the History of Thought', and by Dr. Karl Menninger.
In compiling this Centenary Number of the Journal the Editor has not aimed at a series of contributions written for the occasion, but has made use of various opportunities to secure appropriate papers. The Number includes four brief but historically significant papers by Freud himself, not previously translated, which, to all intents and purposes, can be considered unknown.
