Obituary: AGAP Member René Malamud, 1929-2015

Dr. phil. René Malamud was born in 1929 in Germany, in the Rhineland city of Essen. His father was an electrical engineer who in 1933 moved with his family to Switzerland, settling first in Geneva and then in Zürich. René Malamud studied business for two years in St. Gallen before taking degrees in psychology at the University of Zürich where he wrote his Ph. D. dissertation on “The Psychology of German Pop Songs.”

René Malamud completed his training at the Jung Institute in Zürich in 1966. The subject of his diploma thesis was Euripides’ play, Hyppolitus, a play which addresses the conflict between the Goddess Aphrodite and Artemis, and which René Malamud related to the problems of modern feminine psychology.

René Malamud led a quiet and reflective life. He was a highly esteemed Jungian analyst who worked in private practice. He lived in Zürich-Witikon with his wife and two daughters, but he also spent a great deal of time walking in the Münstertal in southern Switzerland, where over forty years ago he bought and renovated a wonderful old house.

René Malamud was fortunate to work with Marie-Louise von Franz for over forty years, with whom he also had a very close personal relationship. In 1974, he and his friends established the Stiftung für Jung’sche Psychologie, which since Marie-Louise von Franz’s death in 1998 has administered both the von Franz and Barbara Hannah literary estates.

Right up to his passing, René Malamud continued to study and write about Jung and analytical psychology. He had a very broad and far-reaching knowledge, which he shared with only a very few. Of central importance to him was the relationship to the inner life; the works of C. G. Jung and Marie-Louise von Franz; his work with analysands; and our relationships with human beings in general.

René Malamud will be especially missed for his kindness, his generosity, his breadth of vision, and his calm composure.

       Lee Roloff at 88

Roloff at 88 a uploadLee Roloff (1927-2015) died at his home in Seattle, Washington at 5:05 PM on October 5, 2015. He is survived by two sons and several grandchildren. Born in San Diego, California,he was a child of the sun and blessed with a sanguine and optimistic disposition. He taught at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texasbefore taking up a full professorship at Northeastern University in Evanston, Illinois. He was the recipient of many awards for excellence in teaching. As a professor in the Performing Arts at Northwestern, he was the mentor of many students who went on to distinguished careers in the world of theater.

  Lee was one of the first graduates of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts (1978) and a founding member of the Chicago Society of Jungian Analysts (CSJA), which was accepted as an IAAP Member Group in 1980.  He was a training and supervising analyst at the CSJA until his move to Seattle in the late '90's, where he assumed a similar role in the Jungian groups located in the Pacific Northwest.

    In his later years, Lee declared his retirement frequently, but students and analysands always managed to persuade him to remain active as an analyst and teacher, and he invariably acceded gracefully and with a not so hidden sense of pleasure to their requests until his sudden and unexpected final departure just months after his 88th birthday. 

    We, his friends and colleagues in North America and in his beloved South Africa, deeply grieve his passing, but we will keep him present to us in our loving memories of his vivid personality, his wit and elegance,  and his generous service to the Jungian community. 

With gratitude,

Murray Stein

Cesare Casati, A.R.P.A. http://iaap.org/news-2/obituaries-2/1264-cesare-casati-a-r-p-a.html http://iaap.org/news-2/obituaries-2/1264-cesare-casati-a-r-p-a.html  



Cesare Casati, A.R.P.A,  Bergamo, Italy




On March 23, 2015 Cesare Casati passed away. We will always remember him with affection and esteem. His way of interacting with all of us, his colleagues and students, was marked by a sort of lightness, an extraordinary sense of irony, simple good manners and deep respect for others. One had the impression that all of his work on the phenomenon of psychosis had imbued him with a deep sense of his own limits and those of humanity in general.


All of us who knew him recognized the deep affection and connection he had with his family, and yet in a spirit of total discretion, he never made more than a few passing comments on his own home life or on the more intimate, personal sides of his existence.


A recent seminar of his in which he discussed and illustrated the introspective capacities of one of his psychotic patients was highly representative of his way of relating to life in general; even though he had been working in this field for a great number of years, his amazement and enthusiasm were striking and very refreshing. He seemed to incarnate Shoshin or the Beginner’s Mind of Zen Buddhism which, despite (or perhaps in virtue of) great expertise, depth and experience, never loses the freshness and sense of wonder of the fledgling scholar who makes a great discovery for the first time.


In a recent phone conversation shortly after he had been hospitalized, he spoke of the illness that was taking its toll on him. When  asked if he wanted the matter to remain secret, he answered “Why?! After all, it’s not a sin to be sick!.” And in our concluding comments, we remarked that certain sins are indeed widespread and do in fact concern us all.

Eli Weisstub, M.D. http://iaap.org/news-2/obituaries-2/1259-obituary-eli-weisstub-m-d.html http://iaap.org/news-2/obituaries-2/1259-obituary-eli-weisstub-m-d.html Obituary Dr. Eli Weisstub MD

10.1.1943 – 30.3.2015

I met Eli when I studied Psychology at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, where he had just arrived from San Francisco. An instructor of students performing clinical work in hospital psychiatric departments (in 'Hadassa' Medical Center and 'Ezrat Nashim' Hospital), he was always available, collegial without maintaining any distance, and with a Californian spirit of equality. He brought with him a fresh and open professional attitude. Eli was a person of refined taste, and meticulous about quality in every area, from the criticism of theoretical approaches, professional papers and clinical presentations up to and including the choice of a site for a conference, a car or a jacket. In those years Eli played an important role in founding and formalizing the Israeli Society for Analytical Psychology.

When I heard that in moving to Israel, Eli had left an assistant professor post at Stanford University, a succsessful private clinic and a very comfortable life style in San Francisco, I recalled the famous lines of R. M. Rilke in The Book of Hours II - the Book of Pilgrimage (translated by Robert Bly):

Sometimes a man stands up during supper

and walks outdoors,

and keeps on walking,

because of a church

that stands somewhere in the East.

Years later, at his funeral, his brother told a story about their father, which came from Eastern Europe to study medicine in Vienna, and later settled in Canada. He was interested in Jewish thought no less than in medical practice, and in his hidden writings declared that one of his sons would become a doctor in Israel. I thought that Eli was the son who set forth to seek the “church which he [his father] forgot” as in the Rilke poem.

Eli in a very characteristic way, deconstructed the symbolic scheme of Rilke's poem, and did not leave a house and a family to set for his quest, but founded them here, in Jerusalem, in a glorious fashion. He was the combination of a knowledgeable father, well acquainted with analytic psychology and psychoanalytic writings, a profound and precise scholar, and along with these qualities, also a challenging and sometimes even rebellious youngster in his roles as a therapist, a teacher, and in every position he took in the local and global professional world of analytic psychology. These attributes are also expressed in his unique papers: “Questions to Jung on 'Answer to Job'” (JAP 1993) and 'Self as the Feminine Principle' (JAP 1997). It was Eli who taught me Jung's saying: “Thank God I'm not a Jungian”. I learned from him how dangerous the state of an uncritical enthusiast (a “Freudian or Jungian parrot” as he put it) is to individuality, and also to psychoanalytic and analytic psychology institutes and societies.

As an analyst and a teacher Eli was a mentor. A mentor in the Odysseyian way: a guide, a protector, a teacher, a model, sympathetic and encouraging but also uncompromisingly challenging and critical. In the well-sated, politically correct western-world and specifically in the too soft western therapeutic world, some colleagues and students found it difficult to accept his manly direct, confrontational style, and for this reason he did not always receive the appreciation and gratitude he so much deserved. It might be said That Eli was one of the last 'fathers' in the world described above, where maternalizing and feminizing trends are dominant, as Jung himself recognized a century ago (1912). I'll end by quoting Nathan Alterman, an Israely poet of the last century:

Because the father won't die. For he is an endless father.

Alive he will descend to Sheol


The father's lips are still,

Yet the father's voice will be heard.
