Example text

Anna Freud's book (1936) has given us a first insight into their multiplicity and many-sided significance. It was from one of those mechanisms, repression, that the study of neurotic processes took its whole start. There was never any doubt that repression was not the only procedure which the ego could employ for its purposes. Nevertheless, repression is something quite peculiar and is more sharply differentiated from the other mechanisms than they arc from one another. I should like to make this relation to the other mechanisms clear by ;m analogy, though I know that in these matters analogies never carry us very far.

They are resistances not only to the making conscious of contents of the id, but also to the analysis as a whole, and thus to recovery. The effect brought about in the ego by the defences can rightly be described as an 'alteration of the ego' if by that we understand a deviation from the fiction of a normal ego which would guarantee unshakable loyalty to the work of analysis.

Single words would be left out or replaced by others, and new sentences interpolated. Best of all, the whole passage would be erased and a new one which said exactly the opposite put in its place.
