TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO, I spoke at the twenty-fifth anniversary of our institute. That celebration contained only two presentations and lasted only one day: half the day was devoted to a paper by Therese Benedek (1960)-on a psychosomatic topic, I believe, discussed by several analysts especially interested in that field. During the other half-day I presented my paper (1959)-"Introspection, Empathy, and Psychoanalysis"-which was discussed by Rudolph Loewenstein, Helen McLean, Maxwell Gitelson, and Franz Alexander.
