Because there are radial propositions coming from one central group, analysis has not spread itself in a uniform way. Any new radius of action brings to a newly created institute the thinking of the group involved. Analysis, as it is practiced within the psychoanalytic institutes, will continue to create dissension and friction unless it takes into consideration the personalities of its group members.
These papers are more comprehensive than articles dealing with comparable subjects by English-speaking authors. They should be read in their entirety and it is hoped that they will be translated.
