´The Best Possible School´: Anna Freud, Dorothy Tiffany Burlingham and the Hietzing School in 1920s Vienna

Modernism, creativity, the freedom to grow as a “free and self-reliant human being” – with these beliefs, Anna Freud, the youngest daughter of Sigmund Freud, and Dorothy Tiffany Burlingham, the youngest daughter of the great American artist Louis Comfort Tiffany, founded Vienna’s Hietzing School.

To Erik H. Erikson who taught there, it was “the best possible school” and today its true significance, as both the teachers and the students remember it, comes to life in a dynamic new exhibit at the Freud Museum London.

Four historic photographs of Sigmund Freud are on view for the first time, along with original paintings and over 75 vintage pictures from private collections in Europe and America. Notable drawings, manuscripts and autographs make vivid the founders’ vision of the Hietzing School’s origins and sequels, its day-to-day experience and its enduring influence on our understanding of education and the developing mind.

The Freud Museum thanks the Botsiber Institute for Austrian-American Studies, the Zukunftsfond of the Republic of Austria, and the Anna Freud Foundation for their support.

Freud Memorial Lecture 2016

Truth and Treachery: lies, damned lies and dream symbols

Professor R. D. Hinshelwood

Psychoanalysis began with a theory of symbolisation in dreams, which concentrated on unconscious symbolisation. It tended to neglect more conventional forms of symbolic representation. One could therefore draw a distinction between artistic theories, such as Coleridge’s famous dictum that culture requires a ‘willing suspension of disbelief’, and Freud’s concern with repression of the intolerable. In this lecture, R. D. Hinshelwood will reflect on various aspects of these distinctions between disbelief and repression, and truth, illusion and lies, touching on Wilfred Bion’s question, ‘Can liars be psychoanalysed?’ He will conclude that it is perhaps more fruitful to consider language as a device for ‘pointing’ within the internal world of the human mind.

R.D. Hinshelwood is Professor Emeritus in the Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex, and previously Clinical Director, The Cassel Hospital, London. He is a Fellow of the British Psychoanalytical Society, and a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. He has authored A Dictionary of Kleinian Thought (1989), and Research on the Couch: Single Case Studies, Subjectivity and Psychoanalytic Knowledge, in 2013. He is currently working on the nature of psychoanalytic symbols and cultural symbolisation.
