Misfortune

“I was very pleased to see from your letter that your practice is growing. As I told you before, if you can hold out financially I believe that you will – Sarasin or not – make your way in Geneva. Sarasin, who is quite ossiffied, was already so 20 years ago and always extremely hostile to my work and to me personally, so I am afraid you will get some of that on to you, but with the optimism which I have always possessed (as well as scepticism) I believe you will find many students and people in Geneva interested in something which is good, and your pioneer work may carry more weight than whatever obstacles Sarasin is trying to put in your way. It is amazing how people gather that somebody works better than others and I think you also have the temperament to put your views forward effectively in the society, even though they may not like to hear them.”

“That has changed in the meantime, though I still meet with stubborn hostility on the part of the group represented by Anna Freud, but there are many signs that the time will come, sooner or later, when they will not be able to keep this up.”

“In a Society where I have worked for 32 years, I can still and a striking lack of understanding and goodwill in the majority of colleagues. My answer to their lack of interest, to their envy and jealousy, was always to write and, as it happens, in spite of the controversial position in which I still am, there is no doubt that my work is making its way. Again and again I get confirmation of this. Jones used to tell me ‘The truth must come through’, but truth has the quality of being inconvenient, therefore one has to be resigned to the fact that it is always only a minority that can accept it. However, this minority is of great importance.”

“It was with the idea of strengthening that group that de Saussure encouraged Spira to leave Neuchâtel and settle in Geneva. “I’ll be your Ernest Jones!” de Saussure is said to have joked to Spira (Spira 1996, p. 10).”

“Like the Minutes, The Freud-Klein Controversies were not edited by professional historians but by members of the psychoanalytic family, and therefore both texts suffer from a lack of academic distance ideally brought to bear on primary historical evidence.”

“Still, let me point out some of the larger problems with this text, which I think can lead us to what can be learned from it. At no point do the editors weigh and assess what we know about Freud’s own attitude toward Klein’s work. Some of this information has long existed in print. But further evidence of Freud’s attitude toward Klein exists. Freud was partly offended by Klein’s criticisms of Anna Freud, which Freud thought an indirect way of Klein’s challenging him.

Freud deemed her a schismatic and a "deviant," and this harsh assessment, known to his intimates, licensed the quarrel that took place after his death and that is painstakingly recorded in The Freud-Klein Controversies."
