Part 2 of the Rapaport-Holt Letters: A Master-Apprentice Collaboration on Psychoanalytic Theory

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.
