Important historical papers
In addition to the Ferenczi Rediscovered document below, there is a link to two historical papers in the Articles section. The first is A Brief History of the British Psychoanalytical Society by Ken Robinson. The other is Pearl King’s 1996 discussion paper What has happened to psychoanalysis in The British Society?
These are the details and papers of the first conference on the work of Ferenczi by the Independent Group, held in the British Psychoanalytic Society on 15-16 October 1993 . It was the 120th anniversary of Ferenczi’s birth and 60th anniversary of his early death .
It was convened by Dr Sklar in conjunction with the Imago East-West of Dr Szekacs.
It was the first recognition of the importance of reviving the lost link with Ferenczi and his writings for a generation. As Dr Sklar wrote in the introduction ‘if these papers encourage curiosity the Conference will have succeeded in its aim’.
The setting up of IPAT 25 years later is a testament to the re-engagement of The Independent Group with its history, a subject which is continuing.
