Obituary: SAMUEL A. GUTTMAN (1914-1995)

Stanley Goodman

Throughout his psychoanalytic career, Sam Guttman was profoundly dedicated to conserving the best of Freudian psychoanalysis while working to advance both its theory and practice. His scientific contributions to the literature and his creation of innovative organisational structures have added a vital stimulating current to the development of psychoanalytic scholarship and education.

At Cornell he gained a doctorate in neurophysiology, biochemistry and anatomy as well as a medical degree. He taught at the University of Pennsylvania Medical School and retired as a professor of psychiatry at Thomas Jefferson University Medical School in Philadelphia. He continued an active clinical practice of psychoanalysis until illness forced his retirement.

He was continually active in local, national and international psychoanalytic organisations, serving as President of the Philadelphia Association for Psychoanalysis, Chairman of the program committee of the American Psychoanalytic Association and Co-Chairman of the program committee of the International Psychoanalytical Association. As a Fellow representing the Philadelphia Association, he was an active and influential force on the Board of Professional Standards of the American Psychoanalytic Association for many years.

His contributions to the psychoanalytic literature included articles on morning depression, bisexuality in symbolism, aspects of scientific theory construction, indications for psychoanalysis, the concept of structure in psychoanalysis, basic concepts of the psychoanalytic point of view and an article on Robert Wälder's work in applying psychoanalysis to social and political phenomena.
