By Diogenes (articles ) | Jan 07, 2005

In Thursday's Boston Globe, we read that Boston College psychiatrist Fr. William Meissner, S.J.,

committed a "serious breach of professional and scholarly standards" by recycling another professor's ideas in a recent book on psychoanalysis without acknowledging their source, according to the Boston Psychoanalytic Society, which investigated the book's scholarship last year.

Meissner, who had attracted our attention for other efforts, denies the charges. The title of Meissner's oeuvre? The Ethical Dimension of Psychoanalysis: A Dialogue.

Beautiful. Particularly so since, according to the article, Meissner has refused to respond to his accuser's questions and to the Boston Psychoanalytic Society. This dialogue can't hunt.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
