Review by:
E. Stengel

It is a remarkable fact that suicide has never been the chief topic, or one of the chief topics, of a psychoanalytic conference or congress, although there must be few psychoanalysts who did not come face-to-face with this problem in their practice. Psychoanalysts have, of course, written about suicide, especially in relation to the death instinct theory, but the subject has never commanded the concerted interest of psychoanalytic practitioners and research workers. Possibly this is due to their tendency to think in terms of dynamic forces rather than of their effects. However, there was an occasion, far back in the history of psychoanalysis, when suicide was the chief topic of two successive sessions of the Freudian circle. This interesting discussion would have remained unknown but for Federn's initiative. He published a record of it in 1929 (Zeitsch. für psychoanal. Pädagogik, 3, p. 334). The discussion on suicide has now appeared in the Minutes of the Vienna Psychoanalytic Society, Vol. II, reviewed in this Journal (49, p. 113).
