The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child, Volume XXIV.
Eissler, Ruth S.; And Others
Articles on psychoanalytic theory concern libidinal object constancy and mental representation, the unrememberable and unforgettable (repression), and the motive, meaning, and causality of anthropomorphism. Discussions of normal and pathological development include the following: levels of verbal communication in the schizophrenic child, a review of a film dealing with 9 days in a residential nursery, the fetish and the transitional object, the imaginary companion, dreams as visual superego forerunners, the vicissitude of childish omnipotence, the psychology of artistic creativity, ambiguous wording in relation to a toilet phobia, and the development of a psychic apparatus. Clinical studies are concerned with borderline states, diagnosis of paranoia, analysis in relation to developmental stages, drug use in adolescents, and effects of parent death. Studies of the applications of analysis are presented on criminal law in riot control and the relationship of creative activity and intrapsychic functioning in the poetry of Keats. (JM)
