How can this evolution be summed up in terms of a debate of ideas? On Freud’s death, psychoanalysis was divided between those who adhered to his ideas (with the exception perhaps of the death instinct and femininity) and those who wished to extend his work by going beyond it. As Martin Bergmann proposes, a distinction can thus be drawn between the extenders and the modifiers. The main characteristic of the post-Freudian evolution is that it has succeeded in keeping within the psychoanalytic community members who wish to rectify, more or less deeply, Freud’s theories or to propose other principal or leading concepts.

E. and A. Pichon-Rivière, Bleger, the Rascovsky brothers, Racker, have developed interesting theories which, in my opinion, bear the mark of a Hispanic Kleinism that is quite different from the London Mecca. The decisive influence of Willy and Madeleine Baranger should receive particular mention here. Willy Baranger, the author of a classical work on Melanie Klein,3 has played a major role in the Argentinian Psychoanalytic Association, by stimulating an orientation focused on a ‘return to Freud’.
