„Psychoanalytic Controversies”

Controversies of one kind or another have been with us since psychoanalysis’s inception. From the discipline’s earliest days, there were memorable disagreements between Freud and Joseph Breuer, as well as a range of disputes between Freud and Carl Jung, Alfred Adler, Otto Rank, and Sándor Ferenczi. After Freud’s death, there developed the historically famous disagreements between Melanie Klein and Anna Freud, between Karen Horney and the New York Psychoanalytic Institute, and between Jacques Lacan and the International Psychoanalytical Association.

Psychoanalytic controversies, particularly up until the 1980s, were highly charged, emotional, and characterized by hostility, tension, and an air of competitiveness. How are we to explain the contempt and lack of esteem that characterizes the attitude of some communities toward other communities similarly fascinated by a theory?

Why is the appearance of competing camps and the demand for loyalty so widespread in the psychoanalytic world? If the analyst sees many good reasons for his fascination - such as the fact that it is helpful to his patients - why is he troubled that other members of the community are fascinated by other theories with different assumptions about man’s psyche and the objectives of the therapy?

In this lecture I will try to answer these questions through two areas of disagreement within psychoanalysis: the controversial discussions in the British Society surrounding the differing views of Melanie Klein and Anna Freud (1942-1944), and the debate relating to the relevance of infant research to therapeutic processes.
