Sample text

Some people who have within themselves a functional splitting impose on their immediate circle the creation of a situation that itself generates splitting. That brought to my mind, as I was thinking about Melanie Klein’s theories, the idea: “Split thy neighbour as thyself”—but in order to do so, an incestuous psychic complicity is necessary. If that complicity is acquired either by seduction or by the oedipal desire for a child, for example, it becomes possible to use the other person’s energy to fill in any gaps and contain one’s own drive-related impulses.

She remained “on call” 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for the mother’s pleasure. No matter what the patient was doing, she might be interrupted by her mother’s calling her name in a certain melodic way as if to say, “Oh, Mary, do you know what time it is?

When it was determined that “the motive for splitting of consciousness . . was that of defence” (p. 166), psychoanalysis was truly born.
