"Ferenczi was critical of the Berlin school of thinking…"
Sandor Ferenczi and his German colleague Karl Abraham with his other colleagues.
“In 1914 Melanie Klein went into analysis with Sandor Ferenczi, an eminent Hungarian doctor, who was a member of a group of doctors who were followers of a group led by Sigmund Freud. Another member of the group was Hanns Sachs who said he was “the apostle of Freud who was my Christ“. Another member said “there was an atmosphere of the foundation of a religion in that room. Freud himself was its new prophet… Freud’s pupils – all inspired and convinced – were his apostles.” Another member remarked that the original group was “a small and daring group, persecuted now but bound to conquer the world”.

On Frenczi’s recommendation, Melanie Klein read Freud’s The Interpretation of Dreams.”
‘The most intelligent group photo ever. Participants of 5th solvey conference on Quantum Mechanics, 1927. Albert Einstein, Marie S Curie, Niels Bohr and others. 28 out of the 29 in this picture are Nobel Prize Winners.’
Looks like an atmosphere of a science. 😄
“Very early on, Freud “understood that he could never win a Nobel science prize. Psychoanalysis was already under attack as not being a science. He was hurt,” said Elisabeth Roudinesco, the author of the biography “Freud, In his Time and Ours”.”
“Albert Einstein, who won the Physics Prize in 1921, refused to endorse Freud’s nomination for the Medicine Prize in 1928.”
