Adumbrations of Adumbrationism.
Thank you for the reminder. (How ripe the fruits of your trees for unconscious plaguing -- I must have read that chapter a dozen times, and forgotten that was my source for the James reference!)
The E. Bergler reference was "The Writer and Psychoanalysis." 1950. Sorry -- I thought it was on there.
In a parallel vein I am enjoying the perusal of Fiction and the Unconscious by S.O. Lesser/Beacon; '57.
And you a computernik in 1954!

Too bad you can't overlook the Asilomar conference on DNA biohazards which must be setting some new precedents in social process for science. So much is being crystallized in the pre-"trial" publicity I am a bit disheartened about the prospects.
By comparison the Jensen Affair must seem like old hat -- the more as it is already on the boundary of biology and social science. But I suspect there is a niche for it in your files. Perhaps also for that thin one called recantation.
As always
P.S. Thanks for the pictures -- adorable!
