Categories: Rapaport-Holt Letters
In February 2013, we posted the first five chapters of letters between David Rapaport and Robert R. Holt, covering the period from 1950 to 1955. Today we are posting the remaining four chapters, which begin in 1956 and continue until Rapaport’s death in 1960. The whole collection provides readers with an extraordinary opportunity to listen in on a remarkably frank critical dialogue between two leading theorists, as they push each other to confront and resolve shortcomings in their respective writings, all the while deepening a friendship of great mutual respect and affection. We are pleased to finally make the full correspondence available for you and we hope that you will take the time to read them. They portray an exemplary intellectual relationship from which we can all learn. The full collection is available under the Rapaport-Holt Letters category.

Internationanalpsychoanalysis.net has flourished in a remarkable way since it was launched in January 2007. It has become both an archive and a news source.
One of the serendipitous outgrowths of its presence and has been that we have even more reasons to experience ourselves as a community with a history, elders, anniversaries, anecdotes, a paper trail, photos and relics of our founders — and evidence of our on-going growth and adaptation to a very changed therapeutic world.
But the growth has outpaced the cottage and one computer.
Are you able to contribute to the cost of our widening scope?
We will use contributions to internationalpsychoanalysis.net to scan and transcribe papers, search archives, find photographs format documents and upload recordings and videos. It is labor intensive and for me a labor of love [but for the helpers, indeed, work]. Read the rest of this post »
