Opening ceremonies of the Phipps Psychiatric Clinic, Baltimore

Ernest Jones

The new psychiatric clinic of the Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, which, as may be imagined, is the most magnificently equipped and contracted institution of the kind in the world, was opened on April the 17th, 1913, and the event, one of far-reaching importance to American psychiatry, was made the occasion of a symposium in which representatives of different countries participated. The Director of the new clinic is Prof. Adolf Meyer, who is by general consent the most distinguished psychiatrist in America. We may congratulate ourselves that the man in this position and with this influence is one, who although not actually engaged in psycho-analytic practice, is cordially sympathetic to our work, and has done much to support our movement and to spread the knowledge of psycho-analytic principles in America; he has been a member of the Council of the American Psycho-Analytic Association since its inception. The following excerpts may be made from the symposium that are of interest to the readers of the Zeitschrift:

The paper that without doubt made the keenest impression and aroused the widest interest was one by Prof. Bleuler on „Autistic Thinking“, which was both written and delivered in excellent English; we need not relate here the content of the paper, which will be familiar from the one of the same title recently published in the Jahrbuch. Dr. Mc. Dougall, teacher of psychology at Oxford, read a paper on „The Sources and Direction of Psycho-Physical Energy“, in which he described a number of principles in both mental and neural terms.
