Can we please determine once and for all whether it's "Fleiss" or "Fliess"? And post the proof here so that we don't have more changes? -- Antaeus Feldspar 00:27, 20 July 2005 (UTC)

(what about the birth certificate)

Robert Fliess[edit]

As far as I remember somewhere here I've read that according to Robert Fliess's writings the ambulatory psychotic has been his mother Ida, states Esterson. (do I remember right?)

No, it has been here: [3]. Quote:"Oddly enough (and in contrast to Masson's central theme) Fliess's analyses revealed 'the inhuman, psychotic parent who in analysis emerges with such tragic frequency from repression most often [is] the patient's mother' (ibid.: 222, emphasis added)."

Esterson says that according to Robert Fliess "most often" the psychotic parent has been the patient's mother; obviously he has not mentioned his own mother.

I read in Jeffrey Masson's The Assault on Truth that Fliess sexually molested his son Robert, is this true and should it be included in the article?-- (talk) 15:45, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
