Siphnophora: this animal I encountered in the pages of Marais, the South African naturalist; modern science, however, claims that the description he gives of it is inaccurate. Nevertheless, I have let it stand for the sake of the analogy.

"Sherwood Taylor": article printed in The Listener.


Francis J. Mott: his books are privately printed and expensive. They can be obtained from John Watkins, Bookseller, 21 Cecil Court, Charing Cross Road, London. I have found the most suggestive to be The Universal Design of the (Œdipus Complex and The Universal Design of Birth.


Freud: These quotations come from a selection of essays written towards the end of his life.


A critic has complained that such detailed treatment of Groddeck makes me unfair to Freud, Jung, Adler, etc. It is true that Groddeck does not enjoy as wide a reputation; nevertheless he is of interest to me because his equating of mind and body does, in the medical field, roughly what Einstein has done in the realm of physics with the concepts of space and time.
