    The Sandor Ferenczi Center at The New School for Social Research

    The Sandor Ferenczi Center was established at The New School for Social Research in 2008. Sandor Ferenczi (1873–1893) was an important psychoanalytic pioneer and a close associate of Sigmund Freud’s. He is known for his innovative clinical work, his willingness to work with the most difficult of patients, his socially and politically progressive attitudes, and his promotion of a cultural climate that facilitated interdisciplinary conversation between psychoanalysis, the arts, the humanities, and the social sciences.

    The goals of the New School Ferenczi Center include 1) sponsoring lectures, conferences, and workshops relevant to Ferenczi’s legacy of clinical innovation, 2) promoting Ferenczi’s legacy of social and political progressivism, and 3) contributing to the ongoing vitality of psychoanalysis as a cultural, intellectual, therapeutic discipline. The center is affiliated with the International Ferenczi Foundation and the Sandor Ferenczi Society.
