Winnicott’s speech, as BPAS President, on the publication of James Strachey’s Standard Edition of Freud. Winnicott emphasises the edition’s debt to the work of Strachey and to Anna Freud, and considers the translation and publication of Freud to be a significant cultural achievement. Winnicott remarks that while Freud gave new value to inner psychic reality and used the word 'sublimation’ to point the way to a place where cultural experience is meaningful, he did not have a place in his topography of the mind for the experience of things cultural.
