Contents

This was to be the 'Noel Sheehy issue', welcoming him as incoming President in a variety of ways. Following his tragic and unexpected death in May we are still celebrating his life and work, just not in the circumstances any of us would have wished.

Turn to p.504 for the article Noel wrote with his wife, Alex Forsythe, who requested that we continue with publication. And on p.520, you can read a tribute to Noel. Sadly, we will never have the pleasure of Noel's President's columns, which I am sure would have been packed with the kind of candid humour he displayed when I and others met him. He told me that the first one was to be on the topic of Kafka and the Board of Trustees; second, 'Psychology, will it never end?', with reference to Freud's idea that the shelf-life of psychology would be determined by advances in bio-chemistry; third, Albert Camus: 'Ne marche pas devant moi, je peux ne pas suivre. Ne marche pas derrière moi, je peux ne pas mener. La promenade près de moi et sois mon ami.' I think Noel wanted members to 'walk by the Society and be its friend', and I hope that spirit lives on.
