Schizoid Phenomena, Object Relations and the Self

It sounds exotic but shapes the ego experience of most all? The depressive diagnosis “Man’s greatest and While reading this I thought Harry Guntrip coolest name ever? The depressive gnutrip “Man’s greatest and most consistent self-deception” has people fixing attention on their badness instead of their weakness; given the natural preference to feel strong, there are many guntriip to bringing ego-weakness to conscious thought.

Basic ego-weakness leads to reactive behavior that lie open on the surface for all to see. Detachment, obsessional self-mastery, unselfish servicableness to others. We find security by projecting comforting images on the universe. The scientific materialist’s “Iron-chain-of-necessity”, or the religious believer’s father-image. Since ancient Greece, antisocial instincts have been diagnosed as epidemic in human nature.


We convincingly rationalize a more alarming fear, a “flight from life at deep mental levels” induced by failure of ego formation, and an inadequacy felt or factual in coping with life. Libidinal and anti-libidinal drives react differently in the face of an uncaring and scary outside world, and the patterns of the central ego forms in an adversarial reaction.

The therapeautic process is to relax mental fortifications and make room for a real person among the “collection of reactions to impingements”. Anyways, of the analysts I’ve read so far, I think I’d most guntrup to have a beer with Guntrip! Sep 09, Warren Cartwright rated it it was amazing.

If you are interested in how the ‘self’ is formed, you MUST read this book. Extremely important seminal work on object-relations theory as it applies guntri people on the schizoid continuum. Guntrip lays out how the persecuted ego splits off and seeks refuge from a parent who is both abandoning and enveloping. It was a revelation to me. I now understand how and why I am the way I am.

Quotes from Schizoid Hardy Patients usually call it ‘depression’, but it lacks the heavy, black, inner sense of brooding, of anger and of guilt, which are not difficult to discover in classic depression.

Depression is really a more extraverted state of mind, which, while the patient is turning his aggression inwards against himself, is part of a struggle not barry break out into overt angry and aggressive behaviour. The states described above are rather the ‘schizoid states’.

They are definitely introverted. The schizoid person has renounced objects, even though he still needs them. Effective guntripp activity has disappeared into a hidden inner world; the patient’s conscious ego is emptied of gunrip feeling and action, and seems to have become unreal.

You may catch glimpses of intense activity going on in the inner world through dreams and fantasies, but the patient’s conscious ego merely reports these as if it were a neutral observer not personally involved in the inner drama of which it is a detached spectator.

The attitude to the outer world is the same: Such activity as is carried on may appear to be mechanical. When a schizoid state supervenes, the conscious ego appears to be in a state of suspended animation in between two worlds, internal and external, and having no real relationships with either of them.

It has decreed an emotional and impulsive standstill, on the basis of keeping out of effective range and being unmoved. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
