Ferenczi “made all analysts into his pupils”
(S. Freud, Sándor Ferenczi. 1933. S.E., 22, p. 228)

“In some lights, he was the prescient innovator of all modern trends, champion of egalitarism and mutuality, crusader for the recognition of child abuse and trauma. For others, he was the precursors of relational developments in psychoanalysis, sowing the fascinating seeds that flowered and evolved within the main body of psychoanalytic thought.”
(L. Aron and A. Harris A., Sándor Ferenczi. Discovery and Rediscovery. In: The Legacy of Sándor Ferenczi. Hillsdale, NJ, & London: The Analytic Press, 1993, p. 1)

“… a line going back to the technical papers of Ferenczi that were written almost contemporaneously with those of Freud, another perspective on the technique of psychoanalysis, based on mutative power of the psychoanalytic relationship, beyond interpretation or in the interaction with interpretation, emerged as a contrapuntally vital stream of psychoanalytic thinking.”
(R.S. Wallerstein, The talking cures. The psychoanalysis and the psychotherapies, New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 1995, p. 534).
