Annals of the Institute for Orgonomic Science Volume 11

December 2011, Vol. 11, No. 1


  • Malinowski Revisited and Reich’s Children on the Future
    Morton Herskowitz discusses Reich’s insights concerning childhood in the light of Bronislaw Malinowski’s findings in his classic anthropological studies of the Trobriand islanders.
  • Double-Blind Controlled Experiments in the Orgone Energy Accumulator
    Philip Bennett reviews the history of double-blind methods in biomedical research, noting the paucity of their use in orgonomic research. He then describes recent double-blind studies demonstrating biological effects of a device that resembles the orgone energy accumulator.
  • Onion Plant Responses to Orgone Accumulator Treatment
    Heckman presents data from two field experiments on the effects of different durations of accumulator treatment of onion bulbs before planting. Although no significant differences in plant growth parameters were noted, the results suggest that orgone accumulator treatment may retard leaf senescence.
  • Politics, Religion and Human Nature
    Peter Robbins illustrates how irrationalism in politics and society have obstructed scientific research on unidentified flying objects.
  • Children as Teachers
    Dorothea Fuckert describes her experiences parenting based on self-regulation. She describes what she and her husband learned from their two sons as they grew up from infancy through their experiences at Summerhill School and into early adulthood.
  • Foundations for a Functional Analysis of Economics
    Dean Davidson describes Reich’s use of Karl Marx’s analysis of living working power and its role in the production of surplus value. He contrasts Reich’s approach with more recent attempts to understand human economic relations that have ignored these findings.
  • Orgone Therapy – A Patient’s Perspective
    A patient movingly describes the impact of orgone therapy on her life.
Communications and Notes:
    • Memorial tributes to Bernard R. Grad, Ph.D., Eva Renate Reich, M.D. and Ilse Ollendorff Reich
    • Listing of recent lectures and publications by members of the Institute
    • Announcement of the Training Program in Orgonomic Therapy offered by the Institute.
