Psyche and Soul in America

Soon after he feels the freedom of traveling with a group of artists across Austria and Czechoslovakia and has his first extended affair with a woman in the group. He also meets and befriends in Vienna the noted graphic designer Joseph Binder. This is with Elma Pratt’s International School of Art. He grows more disgruntled with the narrowness of his role at Anatolia College, and at the same time feels pressure from the family to return to the U.S., even though friends and teachers warn him of the state of the economy in 1932‒33 in the U.S. and urge him to think twice about giving up his position at Anatolia. Meanwhile, his adherence to a purely religious understanding of life is more and more challenged by the psychoanalytic vision of life and its vocabulary. By the summer of 1933, he decides to return to America and in the fall travels with Joseph Binder to New York.

Keywords:   Elma Pratt, International School of Art, Joseph Binder, “Re-thinking Missions”, Bertrand Russell, Albert Schweitzer, Roma
