Psychoanalysis is a Human Tradition Passed On from One Generation to the Next

(Acceptance speech by Daniel Benveniste upon receiving an Honorary Membership in the American Psychoanalytic Association presented by Dr. Mark Smaller)

I am delighted this evening to accept this Honorary Membership in the American Psychoanalytic Association. It is, indeed, an honor and a great pleasure, as well.

When it comes to developing a professional identity, training is essential. But two other ways of further developing that professional identity are through professional affiliation, with institutes and associations, and/or through lineage. Being an outsider all my life has naturally made me incline less toward belonging and more toward lineage.

Holes in the Door Posts, Poem by Eugene Mahon

Categories: Papers, Poetry

Through the holes
In the doorposts
You can see
Memory
Peering back at you
If you dare to see
What survives
What wouldn’t be
Destroyed.
Cast no cold eye
Horseman:
Put your ear
To the holes in the doorposts
The screams that you hear
Are your own.
–Eugene Mahon
