Although most psychoanalysts in the 1950s thought of mind in nonbiological terms, a few had begun to discuss the biology of the brain and its potential importance for psychoanalysis. Through the Krises, I met three such psychoanalysts: Lawrence Kubie, Sidney Margolin, and Mortimer Ostow. After some discussion with each of them, I decided in the fall of 1955 to take an elective at Columbia University with the neurophysiologist Harry Grundfest. At the time, the study of brain science was not an important discipline at many medical schools in the United States, and no one on the NYU faculty was teaching basic neural science.
Denise simply gave the issue of money short shrift. It was of no importance, she insisted. Her father, who had died a year before I met her, had advised his daughter to marry a poor intellectual because such a man would value scholarship above all and would strive to pursue exciting academic goals. Denise believed she was following that advice (she certainly married someone who was poor), and she always encouraged me to make bold decisions that favored my doing something genuinely new and original.
Much as Anna influenced my thinking about psychoanalysis, Denise influenced my thinking about both empirical science and the quality of life. She also strengthened in me the sense of being a Jew and a Holocaust survivor. Denise's father, a gifted mechanical engineer, came from a long line of rabbis and scholars and had trained as a rabbi in Poland. He left Poland when he was twenty-one years old and went to Caen in Normandy, France, where he studied mathematics and engineering. Although he became an agnostic and stopped going to synagogue, he kept an impressive collection of Hebrew religious texts in his large library, including the Mishnah and a Vilna edition of the Talmud.
