The IFPS's sense of identity and Erich Fromm's legacy
Erich Fromm was one of the founders of the International Federation of Psychoanalytic Societies (IFPS). His motives and interests in establishing the federation will be presented in the context of Fromm's very specific personal situation as well as the situation of psychoanalysis in Mexico 50 years ago. Fromm personally practiced psychoanalysis in a way that still can be seen as a legacy and guideline for the identity of the IFPS 50 years later. Here, I try to describe the sense of identity of the IFPS at the time of its foundation 50 years ago. To do this, I will first portray the interests that motivated Erich Fromm to found the IFPS. I will then address the question of what meaning this former sense of identity might have for the IFPS today.
