But, despite their indisputable worth as a chronicle of the coming of age, spread, and development of psychoanalysis, the value of the Minutes is not merely historical. ***As stated by Dr. Nunberg in his introduction: "The discussions in the Society disclose, perhaps more clearly than his books and essays, how Freud's mind worked. While constantly working on his discoveries, Freud developed and modified his concepts. These modifications were the legitimate result of growing experience and ever-deepening insight into the workings of the human mind. One can easily discover in these records when it was that Freud made remarks indicating new problems. With very few exceptions no one grasped their whole significance at the time. These problems gradually became crystallized in the works that he published. Discussion of these works took place in the meetings of the Society." ***In stating the reasons for the decision to publish the material in its entirety, Dr. Nunberg stresses its historical significance. He also expresses the wish to "let the reader see for himself how the men influenced each other and how they accepted or rejected what was offered them," and "--- to give a fair account of the relationship between Freud and his pupils. However, the Minutes are of value for an additional and maybe more important reason: even today, --- one can learn much from them about the theory and technique of psychoanalysis."'
