The Preservation of Originality
True originality consists not in a new manner but in a new vision.
We offer you this summer issue which includes the second grouping of papers and presentations from the IFPE 2012 Conference.
Larry, Tina and I are continuing with our shared editorial decision-vision to have the majority of the papers keep the original tone of how they were presented at the conference. In doing so we hope to sustain the aliveness that accompanies an oral presentation. Therefore the theme of this issue is: The Preservation of Originality.
One of the hallmark features of an IFPE conference is creating a natural environment that encourages and welcomes originality of thought. Psychoanalysis will sustain itself as long as we have opportunities to exchange and experience ideas out in the open.
We thank our colleagues and the editorial board for reading the submissions and volunteering their time for light editing.
This issue will be more user-friendly. You can just click on a link and select the individual article you would like to read. The contact information for the authors will be included at the end of each article. The authors welcome your responses and comments.
Rachel Newcombe, Tina Griffin, and Larry Green
