Abstract

The Berner Seminarblätter, later called Die Schulreform, a journal dedicated to Progressive Education, were edited by two influential psychoanalytical pedagogues: Ernst Schneider and Oskar Pfister. In this Swiss-German periodical an astonishingly early and positive reception of psychoanalysis can be found. But as the article shows in this periodical, of new education, psychoanalysis was taken up very selectively and without particular interest.
