Riviere

Ferenczi was the first presentation at the Wiesbaden Congress, giving his paper at 9 A.M. on September 4, 1932. Apparently the reaction was muted in Wiesbaden. But it is clear there was a hostile reception: witness Joan Riviere’s assessment:

Its scientific contentions [COT paper] and its statements about analytic practice are just a tissue of delusions which can only discredit psychoanalysis and give credit to its opponents. It cannot be supposed that all Journal readers will appreciate the mental condition of the writer, and in this respect one has to think of posterity, too!

“Winnicott’s second analysis, beginning in 1936, was with Joan Riviere. Winnicott rose to prominence as a psychoanalyst just as the followers of Anna Freud were in conflict with those of Melanie Klein for the right to be called Sigmund Freud’s “true intellectual heirs”.”
