Full text: Brief von Tibor Scitovsky an Josef Steindl

1175 N. Lemon Ave., 
Menlo Park, Cal. 94025 
May 21, 1985 
Dear Josef, 
First, I want to congratulate you on your doctor, honoris 
causa, and also to congratulate the University of Gratz on their good 
judgment in choosing a worthy candidate. So many universities, better 
known than Gratz 7 depreciate that honor by giving it to unworthy people, 
though I am glad to have seen Oxford escaping that predicament by the 
skin of its teeth. 
Second, I am awfully glad that we shall meet and spend some 
time together again. You must now have received my letter, which crossed 
yours, and which tells you about our summer plans. Actually, we are oJ-'VO 
going to a conference on Economic Psychology organized by the University 
of Linz in a place called Zell an der Pram during July 1-5, where Kurt 
Rotschild, poor man, will have to comment on my paper, which is sure to 
displease him, because I suspect that he has no liking for the frivolities 
of economic psychology. Between Zell and Vienna we shall be travelling 
by rented car around Austrian monasteries (Zwettl, Altenburg, Durnstein, 
etc. etc.) and to the Eszterhazy Castle, which Haydn found so boring. 
Third, since you asked for it, I am sending you a paper to 
read, on which I hope you will give me your honest and blunt opinion, 
and which I will ask you to return to me in Vienna, because it has 
already gone to the editor of Kyklos, and I may need a copy in case he 
suggests changes or sends me proof. This I think is a better paper than 
the one Kurt is going to comment on; but I must say that with advancing 
age, I have lost all self-confidence in my own writings. 
With all my best wishes , 
Auf Wiedersehen
