Example text

The infant perceives the breast only in so far as the breast could be created just there and then. There is no inter­ change between the mother and infant. Psychologically the infant takes from a breast what is part of the infant and the mother gives milk to an infant that is part of herself. In psychol­ ogy, the idea of interchange is based on an illusion in the psy­ chologist. (Winnicott 1971a: 11-12) In Fig. 10: A shape is given to the area of illusion to illustrate what I con­ sider to be the main function of the transitional object and of transitional phenomena.

He also believed that O was equivalent to Kanfs (1965) 'thing-in-itself', and his own 'beta elements'. The mystical nature of these investigations had far-reaching consequences on his reputation in England and elsewhere. ' Bion penetrated the Kleinian veil of logical positivism, and opened up her theories to the post-modern age of relativity, deconstruction, intersubjectivity, chaos, complexity, and indeterminacy.

In this position, one metaphorically wears one's sins about one: first as punishment (in the earlier aspect of the depressive position) and then, in the later part, as accepted reminders of the continual presence of one's shadow self The transcen­ dent position, I have argued, can be reserved for the emergence of the post-depressive-position self, the one that has evolved beyond it, has achieved negative capability and is able to forgo memory, desire, and understanding in order to resonate with, evolve into, and become transformed into O; that is, to 'become O'.
