Allocution prononcée par Jacob A. van Belzen au congrès de 2011 de l’IAPR, à Bari :

 « […] how to say something meaningful in only a very few minutes about the work and perhaps the person of a man who can be regarded as a key figure in more than one intellectual movement that swept over Europe during the 20th century, that expanded into the USA and that continue to be of substantial influence in a great number of very different scholarly disciplines? (As many of you know, Vergote’s position in the phenomenological and psychoanalytic movements is important and has been very influential: he was personally acquainted with and a partner in dialogue to persons like Ricoeur, Lacan and quite a number of other celebrities.) How to do justice to the relevance, substance and importance of an author who published more books and articles than most people ever read? How to be fair in less than five minutes when dealing with an oeuvre that is being characterized by its resistance to the tendency to reductionism and sweeping statements that pervades so much of psychology and almost all of the general opinion, an oeuvre that is characterized by its broadening up perspectives and making things far more complicated than they appeared at first, more complicated even than most colleagues realize? And how to do that in the presence of the man himself? […] For what use, besides the enjoyment of listening to anecdotes, would it have for the present audience to hear about my personal memories of this intellectual giant ? Before I had read a single line by Vergote, I already knew he was such a giant: at the Dutch university where I trained initially, colleagues even superior in age to Vergote, spoke about him with great respect (and with quite a bit of jealousy too…). When I think back about his performances at scholarly meetings and conferences, I must say that I rarely, perhaps never, witnessed such a combination of personal charisma, superior scholarship and great character. […] Believe me: if you made your way through the depth of analysis you can find with Vergote, much of other psychology of religion resembles mainly bloodless talk. »
