An example is the idea that regressive access to somatic memories may contribute to the symptoms of conversion hysteria. Paula Heimann’s papers bear the stamp of a basic Freudian training, and often ideas are expressed within this frame of reference which Balint presents in a language near the Hungarian language of Ferenczi, or Winnicott presents in a style which is near to that of the Bloomsbury circle. When Paula Heimann talks of the ego’s withdrawal into creative activity she describes something which Balint (1968) also perceives in the ‘one-person area of creativity’ or Winnicott (1958) in his concept of ‘the child being alone in the presence of the mother’.
In the analysis her parents were for a long time divided into good and bad objects, in that her father was felt to be entirely good with admirable qualities—intelligence, humour, creativeness—and her mother entirely bad—stupid, dull, and narrow-minded. 1 Only when the anxieties and feelings of guilt, requiring such an extreme separation of love and hate, and leading by such over-simplifications to great distortions of reality, had become allayed, and when the patient became more capable of maintaining feelings of love even to a not perfectly good person, could she admit faults in her father and good qualities in her mother.
Moreover, our observations show us that there is no sharp cleavage between mind and body. This compels us to introduce a physical factor into our concept of the ultimate dualistic source. These requirements are fulfilled by Freud’s concept of primary instincts pursuing the opposite aims of life and death. According to Freud’s theory the two basic instincts are always fused with each other. The nature of this fusion and the events which alter the proportions or the effectiveness of either instinct must be of the greatest significance, but as yet our knowledge does not take us that far.
