27 RUE DE FLEURUS, A SALON MEETING OF THE CONTEMPORARY FREUDIAN SOCIETY
“Ferenczi, Yesterday and Today” Jay Frankel
Wednesday, February 4, 2015 8:00 to 10:00pm Location: TBA

Although we speak of free association, transference and the unconscious, the fact it that we rely on discussion of memories in our consulting rooms in order to produce insight.
How apropos is Memorial weekend for turning to the posts on our international psychoanalytic blog, looking back as well as creating more memories? Please enjoy the following with memories in mind.
Note that I am attempting not to list the posts that were present in the 2 preceding weeks.

As usual I will list may preferences followed by the full menu.
My choices are as follows:

1) to begin the memories: Please read about Maria Altmann, and her quest for the Klimt painting which she inherited. The article contains the history and fate of Jewish material culture in Vienna. ***Maybe 80 percent of Gustav Klimt***s iconic portraits were commissioned by Jewish patrons, assimilated Jews, intermarried Jews, baptized Jews, ennobled Jews, or converted Jews with names like Heymann, Wittgenstein, Pulitzer, Lederer, Read the rest of this post »
