Statement of Purpose

The present publication is the first fruit of the recently consummated union of the oldest and youngest journals of psychoanalysis to see the light of day in this country. The Psychoanalytic Review started its distinguished career in 1913, four years after Freud's only appearance in the United States. Under a line of notable editors, beginning with William Alanson White and Smith Ely Jelliffe, it has maintained an uninterrupted tradition of scientific integrity and professional service. The last of its managing editors, Dr. Nolan D. C. Lewis, now joins the editorial staff of this REVIEW in the capacity of Chairman of its Board of Consultants.

Psychoanalysis is a mere infant by comparison to the Psychoanalytic Review. Its life of publication began only six years ago. None the less, it has issued many articles of notable distinction, tending to emphasize the relations of psychoanalysis to contemporary culture. Within the last two years it received widespread praise for two special numbers, one containing three centenary essays on Freud, the other a special book-length double issue entitled Psychoanalysis and the Future.

The pages of this Review are open to all-whatever their orientation, whatever their professional affiliation-who concern themselves with the promotion of the psychoanalytic study of mind and culture. Not being antecedently committed to any orthodoxy, the editors would not think to impose a dogmatic test upon prospective contributors. Only the following signs will be sought: willingness to follow wherever the trail leads, imagination in projecting and integrity in testing hypotheses, rigor in conduct of research and regard for clarity of expression.
