The Rotunda (1826) at the Academical Village of the University of Virginia was designed by Thomas Jefferson to be the centerpiece of his celebrated campus plan. It was the library, the most important building at the university, the repository of knowledge. As such, it occupied the central location between the two long arcades composed of faculty pavilions and student rooms. Jefferson modeled his Rotunda after the Pantheon in Rome reducing its scale by one half. Unlike the Pantheon, it has two intermediate floors composed of oval rooms with the dome room at the top surrounded by niches for books. The 72 foot diameter of the space encloses approximately 4070 square feet.

Leo RANGELL, M.D. was the inaugural speaker for the Volkan Lecture Series, that honors the career and work of CSMHI's founder, Vamýk D. VOLKAN, M.D. He  discussed such ideas as: If Freud had not produced his life-work on the psychology of the individual, his contributions to group psychology would be significant in themselves. Since Freud's beginnings a century ago, group psychopathology has exploded in complexity and portent.  How much of psychoanalytic theory can we extrapolate and apply to groups?  Do countries react to anxiety with defense and pathological outcomes? Does a people have a character? Do nations feel sad, or happy, or worried?  Can a state negotiate and be reasonable?
