Freudians and Jungians in Berlin and in Cape Town
I have the pleasure of announcing some exciting new developments in our exchanges with our Freudian colleagues of the IPA. These encounters are progressing and deepening with each working session.

In 2003, a full 90 years after the rupture between Jung and Freud, I had the honour of organising with Murray Stein the first Freud/Jung panel for the International congress of the IPA in New Orleans. Following this, we organised other, similar panels for the recent congress of the IPA in Rio, then at our congress in Barcelona, always around questions that are at once clinical and theoretical, and that allow us both to agree and to debate.
This year, in 2007, still in the same spirit of exchange and confrontation, another Freud/Jung panel of this type has been set up for the 45th IPA congress to be held in Berlin between the 25th and 28th July.
This panel will be devoted to a particularly sensitive and important issue for all of us : Freud and the Freudians, Jung and the Jungians during the thirties and the Nazi regime. Thomas Aichhorn, from the IPA Austrian Society and our colleague Jörg Rasche, the president of our German Society, will be the speakers.
In addition to this panel, another panel will also take place on the premises of our German Society in Berlin, during the IPA congress. It will be devoted to a comparison between the Freudian approach in terms of primal fantasies, and the Jungian archetypal approach, on the basis of a clinical case.
Our IPA colleague from South America, Eduardo Castelmundi, and again Jörg Rasche will be the presenters.
Alain Gibeault, from the Parisian IPA Society and myself will co-chair these two panels.
Then, another two-part panel will take place in the framework of our congress in Cape Town.
After a communication in the first part presented by Prof. David-Lewis Williams, from Johannesburg, one of the most prominent and internationally well-known palaeoanthropologists, in the second part two Freudian colleagues, Sally Weintrobe, from the IPA British Society, and Alain Gibeault, will open a discussion with Peter Ammann and myself about our respective approaches to some of the enigmas of prehistoric rock art.
We do hope that many of you will participate in these ongoing and promising working parties.
