About this product
- DescriptionThe oedipal situation involves much more than an instinctual at- titude toward a prohibited object giving expression to unconscious wishes. It introduces a whole new way of perceiving the internal and external world and an entirely different orientation to the myriad of life's experiences. A great deal of structural develop- ment, requiring the negotiation of a sequence of early developmen- tal tasks, has to have taken place before it is possible to encompass the complex demands of an oedipal attitude. When these early steps are t negotiated, although genital instinctual impulses may be manifested, the structural alignments necessary to enter into an oedipal position cant be effected and the intrapsychic con- flicts it engenders are t encountered. The thrust of early develop- ment has made it essential for a narcissistic perspective to be adopted toward all stimuli and all relationships in order to enable All attachments must of necessity be continuing self-expansion. based upon the narcissistic supplies they contain, which ultimately lead to increasing levels of independence, self-differentiation, and individuation. It is precisely when the component instincts are con- solidated into a genital drive that a narcissistic orientation can longer incorporate the representation of experiences needed for the full realization of self-potentials. Were stimuli to only possess sig- nificance in regard to their narcissistically enhancing attributes, the resulting dependence upon the external world would run counter to the thrust for independence and automy.
