thanks for this. The lecture was very good; it was the fodder for a great long slowly increasingly drunken conversation with my uncle (who is a thoughtful practicing psychiatrist).
Also! Witkacy I am very glad to have found out about him, makes me that much prouder of my polish half. I am happily forced by interest to find out more about his works, and him; the accounts of what he was like socially I found here:

made me laugh out loud several times.
