Sandor Rado, psychoanalyst, scholar (1890 -- 1972) | NCP-LA

Name: Sandor Rado, psychoanalyst, scholar (1890 -- 1972)


Historical Note:

Sandor Rado met Sigmund Freud in 1915 and decided to cecome a psychoanalyst. He was analysed first by a former analysand of Freud, E. Revesz and then, after his move to Berlin, by Karl Abraham. Among his own distinguished analysands were Wilhelm Reich and Heinz Hartmann, the most prominent  among the ego psycholgists.

Rado published eleven psychoanalytic papers between 1919  and 1942. Perhaps the most important of them  was the 1927 article on "The Problem of Melancholia," whcih borught solutions to certain important  and pertient  problems still unclarified.

Rado work cuminates in his writings on adaptational psychodynamics, a concise reformation of what has come to be known  as ego analysis. In them he presciently criticizes the exclusive  preoccupation of the therapist with the patient's past and the neglect  of his present, among other matters: "on all these points Rado was way ahead  of his time."
