For the past 50 years a series of annual meetings has been held by the American Psychopathological Association whose "genius," according to a former president, "has been to give opportunity for small groups of earnest men to talk things over freely." In accord with contemporary custom this admirable objective has been supplemented in recent years by the more questionable one of publishing the proceedings of these meetings. The result has been a series of symposia of uneven quality whose effect may ultimately be more that of burying good writings than of communicating any of the special benefits of the meetings.
