In previous papers (Bion 1957) I have had occasion, in talking of the psychotic part of the personality, to speak of the destructive attacks which the patient makes on anything which is felt to have the function of linking one object with another. It is my intention in this paper to show the significance of this form of destructive attack in the production of some symptoms met with in borderline psychosis.心理学空间X\7_|'d{ W

5D2M+W!R ^"r0The prototype原型 for all the links of which I wish to speak is the primitive breast or penis. The paper presupposes假定 familiarity with Melanie Klein's descriptions of the infant's fantasies of sadistic attacks upon the breast (Klein 1934), of the infant's splitting of its objects, of projective identification, which is the name she gives to the mechanism by which parts of the personality are split off and projected into external objects, and finally her views on early stages of Oedipus complex (Klein 1928). I shall discuss phantasied attacks on the breast as the prototype of all attacks on objects that serve as a link and projective identification as the mechanism employed by the psyche to dispose of the ego fragments produced by its destructiveness.心理学空间@~#G a3Q8]

a)Y-D5l~tw {4C0I shall first describe clinical manifestations in an order dictated not by the chronology of their appearance in the consulting room, but by the need for making the exposition of my thesis as clear as I can. I shall follow this by material selected to demonstrate the order which these mechanisms assume when their relationship to each other is determined by the dynamics of the analytic situation. I shall conclude with theoretical observations on the material presented. The examples are drawn from the analysis of two patients and are taken from an advanced stage of their analyses. To preserve anonymity I shall not distinguish between the patients and shall introduce distortions of fact which I hope do not impair the accuracy of the analytic description.心理学空间-t)wl9U8E.a:E$`


7K1?%~^)W+U0Observation of the patient's disposition to attack the link between two objects is simplified because the analyst has to establish a link with the patient and does this by verbal communication and his equipment of psychoanalytical experience. Upon this the creative relationship depends and therefore we should be able to see attacks being made upon it.

(i) I had reason to give the patient an interpretation making explicit his feelings of affection and his expression of them to his mother for her ability to cope with a refractory倔强的 child. The patient attempted to express his agreement with me, but although he needed to say only a few words his expression of them was interrupted by a very pronounced stammer which had the effect of spreading out his remark over a period of as much as a minute and a half. The actual sounds emitted bore resemblance to gasping for breath; gaspings were interspersed with gurgling sounds as if he were immersed in water. I drew his attention to these sounds and he agreed that they were peculiar and himself suggested the descriptions I have just given.心理学空间r Z2nz i/eSB6~"R

^;h6Fi+TT0(ii) The patient complained that he could not sleep. Showing signs of fear, he said, 'It can't go on like this'. Disjointed remarks gave the impression that he felt superficially that some catastrophe would occur, perhaps akin to insanity, if he could not get more sleep. Referring to material in the previous session I suggested that he feared he would dream if he were to sleep. He denied this and said he could not think because he was wet. I reminded him of his use of the term 'wet' as an expression of contempt for somebody he regarded as feeble and sentimental. He disagreed and indicated that the state to which he referred was the exact opposite. From what I knew of this patient I felt that his correction at this point was valid and that somehow the wetness referred to an expression of hatred and envy such as he associated with urinary attacks on an object. I therefore said that in addition to the superficial fear which he had expressed he was afraid of sleep because for him it was the same thing as the oozing away 慢慢消失of his mind itself. Further associations showed that he felt that good interpretations from me were so consistently and minutely split up by him that they became mental urine which then seeped uncontrollably away. Sleep was therefore inseparable from unconsciousness, which was itself identical with a state of mindlessness which could not be repaired. He said, 'I am dry now'. I replied that he felt he was awake and capable of thought, but that this good state was only precariously maintained.

I;A)uP.Bb/@0(iii) In this session the patient had produced material stimulated by the preceding week-end break. His awareness of such external stimuli had become demonstrable at a comparatively recent stage of the analysis. Previously it was a matter for conjecture猜测 how much he was capable of appreciating reality. I knew that he had contact with reality because he came for analysis by himself, but that fact could hardly be deduced from his behaviour in the sessions. When I interpreted some associations as evidence that he felt he had been and still was witnessing an intercourse between two people, he reacted as if he had received a violent blow猛击. I was not then able to say just where he had experienced the assault and even in retrospect I have no clear impression. It would seem logical to suppose that the shock had been administered给予 by my interpretation and that therefore the blow came from without, but my impression is that he felt it as delivered from within; the patient often experienced what he described as a stabbing attack from inside. He sat up and stared intently into space. I said that he seemed to be seeing something. He replied that he could not see what he saw. I was able from previous experience to interpret that he felt he was 'seeing' an invisible object and subsequent experience convinced me that in the two patients on whose analysis I am depending for material for this paper, events occurred in which the patient experienced invisible-visible hallucinations幻觉. I shall give my reasons later for supposing that in this and the previous example similar mechanisms were at work.心理学空间D@ O#y0n6o0Jy i ~



(iv) In the first twenty minutes of the session the patient made three isolated remarks which had no significance for me. He then said that it seemed that a girl he had met was understanding. This was followed at once by a violent, convulsive movement which he affected to假装 ignore. It appeared to be identical with the kind of stabbing attack I mentioned in the last example. I tried to draw his attention to the movement, but he ignored my intervention as he ignored the attack. He then said that the room was filled with a blue haze蓝色烟雾. A little later he remarked that the haze had gone, but said he was depressed. I interpreted that he felt understood by me. This was an agreeable experience, but the pleasant feeling of being understood had been instantly destroyed and ejected. I reminded him that we had recently witnessed his use of the word 'blue' as a compact description of vituperative sexual conversation. If my interpretation was correct, and subsequent events suggested that it was, it meant that the experience of being understood had been split up, converted into particles of sexual abuse and ejected. Up to this point I felt that the interpretation approximated closely to his experience. Later interpretations, that the disappearance of the haze was due to reintrojection再次内摄 and conversion into depression, seemed to have less reality for the patient, although later events were compatible with its being correct.心理学空间o0y&Quc

(4)在心理治疗时间段的前二十分钟里,病人说了三段没什么关联的话,对我来说也没什么重要性。然后他说,他遇到的一个女孩似乎很善解人意。这之后马上是一个激烈的抽搐动作,他假装忽略掉。它似乎与我在前一个例子中的刺伤很像。我试图把他的注意力引到这个动作上,但是他忽略了我的干预,就像忽略那个攻击一样。然后他说,房间里充满了一种蓝色烟雾。过了一会会,他说烟雾没有了,但是说他很抑郁。我解释说,他觉得被我理解了。这是一个令人愉快的体验,但是这种被人理解的愉快感觉很快就被摧毁然后投射出去了。我提醒他,我们最近一起看到他用“蓝色”这个词来简洁的描述羞辱性的性谈话。如果我的解释是正确的,并且随后的事情表明确实是这样,它意味着被理解的体验被分裂了,转换成了性虐待的小词句然后射出来了。到这个点上,我觉得这个解释与他的体验很接近。之后的解释,烟雾的消失是由于再次内摄,转化成了抑郁,似乎对病人来说现实性要小一点,虽然之后的事件证明它是正确的。心理学空间"lHw eDyn3e5Tl)Z

1E \\F? N H6G0(v) The session, like the one in my last example, began with three or four statements of fact such as that it was hot, that his train was crowded, and that it was Wednesday; this occupied thirty minutes. An impression that he was trying to retain contact with reality was confirmed when he followed up by saying that he feared a breakdown. A little later he said I would not understand him. I interpreted that he felt I was bad and would not take in what he wanted to put into me. I interpreted in these terms deliberately because he had shown in the previous session that he felt that my interpretations were an attempt to eject feelings that he wished to deposit in me. His response to my interpretation was to say that he felt there were two probability clouds in the room. I interpreted that he was trying to get rid of the feeling that my badness was a fact. I said it meant that he needed to know whether I was really bad or whether I was some bad thing which had come from inside him. Although the point was not at the moment of central significance I thought the patient was attempting to decide whether he was hallucinated or not. This recurrent anxiety in his analysis was associated with his fear that envy and hatred of a capacity for understanding was leading him to take in a good, understanding object to destroy and eject it—a procedure which had often led to persecution迫害 by the destroyed and ejected object. Whether my refusal to understand was a reality or hallucination was important only because it determined what painful experiences were to be expected next.

(5)这次治疗,像上一个例子中一样,以三四个事实的陈述作为开始,比如今天很热,火车上人很多,今天星期三;这占据了三十分钟。这给人一种他在努力与现实保持接触的印象,他随后说的话证实了这一点,他说他害怕会崩溃。过了一会会,他说我不会理解他。我解释说,他觉得我是坏的,将不会接受他想要放进我的东西。我故意用这些词语来做解释,因为在之前的治疗中,他感觉我的解释是试图将他想要放进我那里的感受射出来。他对我的解释的反应是说,他觉得房间里面有两个可能的云。我解释说,他试着消除掉我的坏是一个事实这个感觉。我说,它意味着他需要知道,我确实是坏的,还是我是来自他内部的某些坏东西。虽然在那个时刻并不是最为关键的,但是我认为病人是在试图决定他是否产生了幻觉。在他的分析中经常发生的这种焦虑与他的恐惧有关,他害怕对理解能力的嫉妒和恨会导致他接受一个好的,理解性的客体,然后毁灭并投射它——这个程序通常会导致被毁灭和投射的客体的迫害。我对理解的拒绝是现实的还是幻觉中的很重要,只是因为它决定了随之而来的究竟是何种痛苦体验。心理学空间!h(\l9bQ zYA

(vi) Half the session passed in silence; the patient then announced that a piece of iron had fallen on the floor. Thereafter he made a series of convulsive movements in silence as if he felt he was being physically assaulted from within. I said he could not establish contact with me because of his fear of what was going on inside him. He confirmed this by saying that he felt he was being murdered. He did not know what he would do without the analysis as it made him better. I said that he felt so envious of himself and of me for being able to work together to make him feel better that he took the pair of us into him as a dead piece of iron and a dead floor that came together not to give him life but to murder him. He became very anxious and said he could not go on. I said that he felt he could not go on because he was either dead, or alive and so envious that he had to stop good analysis. There was a marked decrease of anxiety, but the remainder of the session was taken up by isolated statements of fact which again seemed to be an attempt to preserve contact with external reality as a method of denial of his phantasies.

R;a%kO&c:t_v9x0These episodes have been chosen by me because the dominant theme in each was the destructive attack on a link. In the first the attack was expressed in a stammer which was designed to prevent the patient from using language as a bond between him and me. In the second sleep was felt by him to be identical with projective identification that proceeded unaffected by any possible attempt at control by him. Sleep for him meant that his mind, minutely fragmented, flowed out in an attacking stream of particles.心理学空间e2V {nV)Si3@


我之所以选择这些片段,是因为它们每一个的显著主题都是对联结的破坏性攻击。在第一个例子中,攻击是以口吃的形式表达的,这个口吃用来阻止病人用语言作为他和我之间的联系。在第二例子中,睡眠被他感知为与进行的投射性认同一样,不受他的半点控制。对他来说,睡眠意味着他的理智,常常是碎片化的,在微粒的攻击之流中流出来。心理学空间8\P;uqX X9] \$O&s

$J5H`:~2A'P!S0The examples I give here throw light on schizophrenic dreaming. The psychotic patient appears to have no dreams, or at least not to report any, until comparatively late in the analysis. My impression now is that this apparently dreamless period is a phenomenon analogous to the invisibles-visual hallucination. That is to say, that the dreams consist of material so minutely fragmented that they are devoid of 缺乏any visual component. When dreams are experienced which the patient can report because visual objects have been experienced by him in the course of the dream, he seems to regard these objects as bearing much the same relationship to the invisible objects of the previous phase as faeces seem to him to bear to urine. The objects appearing in experiences which we call dreams are regarded by the patient as solid and are, as such, contrasted with the contents of the dreams which were a continuum of minute, invisible fragments.心理学空间iK(S/O8UD

At the time of the session the main theme was not an attack on the link but the consequences of such an attack, previously made, in leaving him bereft of 失去a state of mind necessary for the establishment of a satisfying relationship between him and his bed. Though it did not appear in the session I report, uncontrollable projective identification, which was what sleep meant to him, was thought to be a destructive attack on the state of mind of the coupling parents. There was therefore a double anxiety; one arising from his fear that he was being rendered mindless, the other from his fear that he was unable to control his hostile attacks, his mind providing the ammunition, on the state of mind that was the link between the parental pair. Sleep and sleeplessness were alike inacceptable.心理学空间ca\_-i

这个治疗时间段里面,主要的主题不是对联结的攻击,而是之前所做的这种攻击的后果,让他失去在他与他的床之间建立满意关系所必须的一种理智状态。虽然它没有在我所报告的那个时间段里出现,但是不可控制的投射性认同,也就是梦对他来说意味着的东西,被认为是对联结起源的理智状态的破坏性攻击。因此这里有双重的焦虑;一个源自于他对变成没头脑的恐惧,另一个是对他无法控制他的敌意攻击的恐惧,他的理智提供了弹药,用来攻击起源配对之间联结的理智状态。睡眠和无眠一样不可接受。心理学空间&Dmj(B&F'p Rq

rp'x-nXra"wU0In the third example in which I described visual hallucinations of invisible objects, we witness one form in which the actual attack on the sexual pair is delivered. My interpretation, as far as I could judge, was felt by him as if it were his own visual sense of a parental intercourse; this visual impression is minutely fragmented and ejected at once in particles so minute微小的 that they are the invisible components of a continuum. The total procedure has served the purpose of forestalling预防 an experience of feelings of envy for the parental state of mind by the instantaneous expression of envy in a destructive act. I shall have more to say of this implicit hatred of emotion and the need to avoid awareness of it.心理学空间f&X0f;B,_,n&|.^D"k

fca w*C0In my fourth example, the report of the understanding girl and the haze, my understanding and his agreeable state of mind have been felt as a link between us which could give rise to a creative act.

In my fifth example, of the two probability clouds, a capacity for understanding is the link which is being attacked, but the interest lies in the fact that the object making the destructive attacks is alien to the patient. Furthermore, the destroyer is making an attack on projective identification which is felt by the patient to be a method of communication. In so far as my supposed attack on his methods of communication is felt as possibly secondary to his envious attacks on me, he does not dissociate himself from feelings of guilt and responsibility. A further point is the appearance of judgement, which Freud regards as an essential feature of the dominance of the reality principle, among the ejected parts of the patient's personality. The fact that there were two probability clouds remained unexplained at the time, but in subsequent sessions I had material which led me to suppose that what had originally been an attempt to separate good from bad survived in the existence of two objects, but they were now similar in that each was a mixture of good and bad. Taking into consideration material from later sessions, I can draw conclusions which were not possible at the time; his capacity for judgement, which had been split up and destroyed with the rest of his ego and then ejected, was felt by him to be similar to other bizarre objects of the kind which I have described in my paper on 'The differentiation of the psychotic from the non-psychotic parts of the personality'. These ejected particles were feared because of the treatment he had accorded符合 them. He felt that the alienated judgement—the probability clouds—indicated that I was probably bad. His suspicion that the probability clouds were persecutory and hostile led him to doubt the value of the guidance they afforded him. They might supply him with a correct assessment or a deliberately false one, such as that a fact was an hallucination or vice versa; or would give rise to what, from a psychiatric point of view, we would call delusions. The probability clouds themselves had some qualities of a primitive breast and were felt to be enigmatic and intimidating.心理学空间MOAk$B~ BN




In my sixth illustration, the report that a piece of iron had fallen on the floor, I had no occasion for interpreting an aspect of the material with which the patient had by this time become familiar. (I should perhaps say that experience had taught me that there were times when I assumed the patient's familiarity with some aspect of a situation with which we were dealing, only to discover that, in spite of the work that had been done upon it, he had forgotten it.) The familiar point that I did not interpret, but which is significant for the understanding of this episode, is that the patient's envy of the parental couple had been evaded by his substitution代替 of himself and myself for the parents. The evasion回避 failed, for the envy and hatred were now directed against him and me. The couple engaged in a creative act are felt to be sharing分享 an enviable值得羡慕的, emotional experience; he, being identified also with the excluded party, has a painful, emotional experience as well. On many occasions the patient, partly through experiences of the kind which I describe in this episode, and partly for reasons on which I shall enlarge later, had a hatred of emotion, and therefore, by a short extension, of life itself. This hatred contributes to the murderous attack on that which links the pair, on the pair itself and on the object generated by the pair. In the episode I am describing, the patient is suffering the consequences of his early attacks on the state of mind that forms the link between the creative pair and his identification with both the hateful and creative states of mind.


在我的第六个例子,那个报告说一块烙铁掉在地板上的,我没有机会解释病人那个时候已经熟悉了的材料的一个方面。(我或许应该说经验告诉我,当我假定病人对我们正在处理的情境的一些方面很熟悉的时候,只会发现,尽管在此之上开展了工作,他已经忘掉它了。)我没有解释的熟悉的一点,但是理解这个片段很重要的一点是,病人对父母的嫉妒已经通过用他自己和我自己代替父母而回避了。这个回避失败了,因为现在嫉妒和仇恨现在是指向他和我的。参与一个创造性行动的两个人现在被觉得是在分享一个值得羡慕的,情感的体验;他,也与被排除的部分有认同,也有一个痛苦的,情感的体验。在许多时候,这个病人,部分通过我在这个片段中描述的这种体验,对情感有仇恨,因此,通过一个小的延伸,对生活本身也产生了仇恨。这个仇恨促成了对联结配对的东西,对配对,对这个配对产生的物体的攻击。在我描述的片段中,病人正在承受着他对形成创造性配对联结的理智状态和他与仇恨和创造性的理智状态的认同的早期攻击的后果。心理学空间"H xd Lv NAZ

In this and the preceding illustration there are elements that suggest the formation of a hostile persecutory object, or agglomeration of objects, which expresses its hostility in a manner which is of great importance in producing the predominance of psychotic mechanisms in a patient; the characteristics with which I have already invested the agglomeration聚集 of persecutory objects have the quality of a primitive原初的, and even murderous凶残的, superego.心理学空间bU s;A FE

+K}/u\yX8K'V0In the paper I presented at the International Congress of 1957 (Bion 1957) I suggested that Freud's analogy of an archaeological investigation with a psychoanalysis was helpful if it were considered that we were exposing evidence not so much of a primitive civilization as of a primitive disaster. The value of the analogy is lessened because in the analysis we are confronted not so much with a static situation that permits leisurely study, but with a catastrophe灾难 that remains at one and the same moment actively vital and yet incapable of resolution into quiescence. This lack of progress in any direction must be attributed in part to the destruction of a capacity for curiosity and the consequent inability to learn, but before I go into this I must say something about a matter that plays hardly any part in the illustrations I have given.心理学空间Os I0bx9a"R0[0X8EL6@

在我向1957年国际会议上呈报的论文里面,我提出,弗洛伊德将精神分析比作考古学调查的类比是有帮助的,只要它所考虑的是,我们所正在的揭露的证据不是关于一个原始文明而是关于一个原始灾难的。这个类比的价值进一步降低了,因为在分析中我们面对的并不是一个静止不动的状态,让我们可以闲适地研究,而是一个动态的灾难,可能不能通过静止来解决。这种朝着任何方向都缺乏进展的状态部分原因是,好奇的能力的破坏,以及随之而来的学习能力的丧失,但是再讲这个之前,我必须讲一些在上面我给出的例子中几乎没有起到任何作用的东西。心理学空间5X-] R6Z t&G}5n


Attacks on the link originate in what Melanie Klein calls the paranoid-schizoid phase. This period is dominated by part-object relationships (Klein 1948). If it is borne in mind that the patient has a part-object relationship with himself as well as with objects not himself, it contributes to the understanding of phrases such as 'it seems' which are commonly employed by the deeply disturbed patient on occasions when a less disturbed patient might say 'I think' or 'I believe'. When he says 'it seems' he is often referring to a feeling —an 'it seems' feeling— which is a part of his psyche and yet is not observed as part of a whole object. The conception of the part-object as analogous to an anatomical structure解剖结构, encouraged by the patient's employment of concrete images as units of thought, is misleading because the part-object relationship is not with the anatomical structures only but with function, not with anatomy but with physiology生理学, not with the breast but with feeding, poisoning, loving, hating.心理学空间r E7v?)M8Kkye

This contributes to the impression of a disaster that is dynamic and not static. The problem that has to be solved on this early, yet superficial, level must be stated in adult terms by the question, 'What is something?' and not the question 'Why is something?' because 'why' has, through guilt, been split off. Problems, the solution of which depends upon an awareness of causation因果关系, cannot therefore be stated, let alone solved. This produces a situation in which the patient appears to have no problems except those posed by the existence of analyst and patient. His preoccupation is with what is this or that function, of which he is aware though unable to grasp the totality of which the function is a part. It follows that there is never any question why the patient or the analyst is there, or why something is said or done or felt, nor can there be any question of attempting to alter the causes of some state of mind.... Since 'what?' can never be answered without 'how?' or 'why?' further difficulties arise. I shall leave this on one side to consider the mechanisms employed by the infant to solve the problem 'what?' when it is felt in relation to a part-object relationship with a function.

I employ the term 'link' because I wish to discuss the patient's relationship with a function rather than with the object that subserves a function; my concern is not only with the breast, or penis, or verbal thought, but with their function of providing the link between two objects.



b({2Bu%w|-FKS0In her 'Notes on Some Schizoid Mechanisms' (1946) Melanie Klein speaks of the importance of an excessive employment of splitting and projective identification in the production of a very disturbed personality. She also speaks of 'the introjection of the good object, first of all the mother's breast' as a 'precondition for normal development'. I shall suppose that there is a normal degree of projective identification, without defining the limits within which normality lies, and that associated with introjective identification this is the foundation on which normal developments rests.心理学空间O&LM ]_hQ

This impression derives partly from a feature in a patient's analysis which was difficult to interpret because it did not appear to be sufficiently obtrusive at any moment for an interpretation to be supported by convincing evidence. Throughout the analysis the patient resorted to projective identification with a persistence固执 suggesting it was a mechanism of which he had never been able sufficiently to avail有益于 himself; the analysis afforded him an opportunity for the exercise of a mechanism of which he had been cheated. I did not have to rely on this impression alone. There were sessions which led me to suppose that the patient felt there was some object that denied拒绝 him the use of projective identification. In the illustrations I have given, particularly in the first, the stammer, and the fourth, the understanding girl and the blue haze, there are elements which indicate that the patient felt that parts of his personality that he wished to repose in me were refused entry by me, but there had been associations prior to this which led me to this view.

/zl4g }LCz0x]0这个印象部分来自于病人分析中的一个特点,它很难去做解释,因为在任何时候似乎都不够突出,使得解释无法获得确信的证据支持。整个分析中,病人固执地诉诸于投射性认同,表明它是一种他从来没有充分用来给他自己带来好处的心理机制;分析让他有机会运用一种他一直被欺骗的机制。我不需要只依赖这个印象。有一些治疗时间段让我假定,病人感到某个客体拒绝他使用投射性认同。在我给出的例子中,特别是第一个,有一些元素表明,病人感觉他想要放到我那里的部分人格被我拒绝进入,但是在这之前还有一些自由联想让我有了这个观点。


8Tp4f\0k8cOp;Z0When the patient strove to rid himself of fears of death which were felt to be too powerful for his personality to contain he split off his fears and put them into me, the idea apparently being that if they were allowed to repose停留 there long enough they would undergo modification by my psyche and could then be safely reintrojected. On the occasion I have in mind the patient had felt, probably for reasons similar to those I give in my fifth illustration, the probability clouds, that I evacuated them so quickly that the feelings were not modified, but had become more painful.心理学空间!MU(`,e E,rr

4UNwH6k~'sNO}k0Associations from a period in the analysis earlier than that from which these illustrations have been drawn showed an increasing intensity of emotions in the patient. This originated in what he felt was my refusal to accept parts of his personality. Consequently he strove to force them into me with increased desperation and violence. His behaviour, isolated from the context of the analysis, might have appeared to be an expression of primary aggression. The more violent his phantasies of projective identification, the more frightened he became of me. There were sessions in which such behaviour expressed unprovoked无缘无故的 aggression, but I quote this series because it shows the patient in a different light, his violence a reaction to what he felt was my hostile defensiveness. The analytic situation built up in my mind a sense of witnessing an extremely early scene. I felt that the patient had experienced in infancy a mother who dutifully responded to the infant's emotional displays.心理学空间1mm%n|WWWK


2F?F o.b Z+h'D#g0The dutiful response had in it an element of impatient 'I don't know what's the matter with the child.' My deduction was that in order to understand what the child wanted the mother should have treated the infant's cry as more than a demand for her presence. From the infant's point of view she should have taken into her, and thus experienced, the fear that the child was dying. It was this fear that the child could not contain. He strove to split it off together with the part of the personality in which it lay and project it into the mother. An understanding mother is able to experience the feeling of dread, that this baby was striving to deal with by projective identification, and yet retain a balanced outlook. This patient had had to deal with a mother who could not tolerate experiencing such feelings and reacted either by denying the ingress进入, or alternatively by becoming a prey to the anxiety which resulted from the introjection of the infant's feelings. The latter reaction must, I think, have been rare: denial was dominant.心理学空间$m-fGsA%\ i6W

7r^[(D;Rs`\0In the analysis a complex situation may be observed. The patient feels he is being allowed an opportunity of which he had hitherto至今 been cheated; the poignancy强烈 of his deprivation is thereby rendered释放 the more acute and so are the feelings of resentment at the deprivation. Gratitude for the opportunity coexists with hostility to the analyst as the person who will not understand and refuses the patient the use of the only method of communication by which he feels he can make himself understood. Thus the link between patient and analyst, or infant and breast, is the mechanism of projective identification. The destructive attacks upon this link originate in a source external to the patient or infant, namely the analyst or breast. The result is excessive projective identification by the patient and a deterioration退化 of his developmental processes.心理学空间_8[h}d3WIz_

B_W ^J%LNj"PL0在分析中可能会观察到一个复杂的情境。病人感到给予了他至今为止一直被欺骗的机会;因此他受剥夺的感受释放得更为强烈,对剥夺的憎恨的感受也一样。对这个机会的感激与对分析师的敌意共存,因为分析师也是那个不理解他,并且拒绝病人使用他感觉是唯一的能让他被人理解的沟通方式的人。因此病人和分析师,或者婴儿和乳房之间的联结,是投射性认同的机制。对这个联结的破坏性攻击源自于外在于病人或者婴儿,也就是分析师或者乳房的来源。结果就是病人过度的投射性认同和他的发展过程的退化。心理学空间(Y9rZ0} X8~ W'vU

I do not put forward提出 this experience as the cause of the patient's disturbance; that finds its main source in the inborn disposition of the infant as a I described it in my paper on 'The differentiation of the psychotic from the non-psychotic personalities' (Bion 1957). I regard it as a central feature of the environmental factor in the production of the psychotic personality.

Before I discuss this consequence for the patient's development, I must refer to the inborn characteristics and the part that they play in producing attacks by the infant on all that links him to the breast, namely, primary aggression and envy. The seriousness of these attacks is enhanced if the mother displays the kind of unreceptiveness which I have described, and is diminished削弱, but not abolished废除, if the mother can introject the infant's feelings and remain balanced (Klein 1957); the seriousness remains because the psychotic infant is overwhelmed with hatred and envy of the mother's ability to retain a comfortable state of mind although experiencing the infant's feelings.

在我讨论对病人发展的造成的后果之前,我必须提及天生的特点,以及它们在产生婴儿对所有与乳房联结的东西的攻击——也就是原初攻击性和嫉妒——上的作用。如果母亲展示出我已经描述过的不接受性,这些攻击的严重性会增强,如果母亲可以内摄婴儿的感受并且保持平衡,这些攻击的严重性会降低,但不会彻底消除;严重性还保留着,因为精神病性的婴儿被对母亲虽然体验到婴儿的感受,但是保持一个舒服的理智状态的能力的仇恨和嫉妒所淹没。心理学空间){j Ufz&n8w

k1y;znq2[/?0This was clearly brought out by a patient who insisted that I must go through it with him, but was filled with hate when he felt I was able to do so without a breakdown(典型的边缘性人格障碍反应). Here we have another aspect of destructive attacks upon the link, the link being the capacity of the analyst to introject the patient's projective identifications. Attacks on the link, therefore, are synonymous with attacks on the analyst's, and originally the mother's, peace of mind. The capacity to introject is transformed by the patient's envy and hate into greed devouring吞食,毁灭 the patient's psyche; similarly, peace of mind becomes hostile indifference. At this point analytic problems arise through the patient's employment (to destroy the peace of mind that is so much envied) of acting out, delinquent acts 不良行为and threats of suicide.

To review the main features so far: the origin of the disturbance is twofold. On the one hand there is the patient's inborn disposition to excessive destructiveness, hatred, and envy: on the other the environment which, at its worst, denies to the patient the use of the mechanisms of splitting and projective identification. On some occasions the destructive attacks on the link between patient and environment, or between different aspects of the patient's personality, have their origin in the patient; on others, in the mother, although in the latter instance and in psychotic patients, it can never be in the mother alone. The disturbances commence with life itself. The problem that confronts the patient is: What are the objects of which he is aware? These objects, whether internal or external, are in fact part-objects and predominantly, though not exclusively, what we should call functions and not morphological structures形态结构.心理学空间X*^TW-j


nN!X.S rji}0心理学空间4~0S)H4l ]{-N+EX"].@\

This is obscured because the patient's thinking is conducted by means of concrete objects and therefore tends to produce, in the sophisticated mind of the analyst, an impression that the patient's concern is with the nature of the concrete object. The nature of the functions which excite the patient's curiosity he explores by projective identification. His own feelings, too powerful to be contained within his personality are amongst these functions. Projective identification makes it possible for him to investigate his own feelings in a personality powerful enough to contain them. Denial of the use of this mechanism, either by the refusal of the mother to serve as a repository仓库 for the infant's feelings, or by the hatred and envy of the patient who cannot allow the mother to exercise this function, leads to a destruction of the link between infant and breast and consequently to a severe disorder of the impulse to be curious on which all learning depends.


这一点被掩盖了,因为病人的思考是通过具体的物体的方式进行的,因此倾向于产生,在分析师复杂的头脑看来的一种印象,病人关心的是具体的物体的本质。刺激病人的好奇心的功能的本质,他通过投射性认同进行探索。他自身的感受,太过于强大以至于不能在他的人格中容纳就在这些功能中间。投射性认同让他可以在一个足够强大到可以容纳它们的人格中研究他的感受。对这个心理机制的拒绝,不管是因为母亲拒绝作为婴儿感受的仓库,还是因为病人的嫉妒和仇恨不允许母亲去承担这个功能,导致婴儿和乳房间联结的破坏,因此导致好奇心的冲动有了严重的障碍,而所有的学习都依赖于这种好奇心。心理学空间i%LN7mY zw'a

The way is therefore prepared for a severe arrest of development. Furthermore, thanks to a denial of the main method open to the infant for dealing with his too powerful emotions, the conduct of emotional life, in any case a severe problem, becomes intolerable. Feelings of hatred are thereupon directed against all emotions, including hate itself, and against external reality which stimulates them. It is a short step from hatred of the emotions to hatred of life itself. As I said in my paper on the 'The differentiation of the psychotic from the non- psychotic personalities' (Bion 1957), this hatred results in导致 a resort to依靠 projective identification of all the perceptual apparatus 知觉器官including the embryonic thought which forms a link between sense impressions and consciousness. The tendency to excessive projective identification when death instincts predominate is thus reinforced强化了.心理学空间I xg4[Q


因此会导致发展的严重停滞。而且,由于对婴儿处理对他来说太过于强大的情绪的主要方式的拒绝,管理情绪生活,任何情况下都是一个严重的问题,变得无法忍受。于是仇恨的感觉导向了所有的情绪,包括仇恨自身,以及所有刺激起这些情绪的外在现实。从恨情绪到恨生活本身是顺理成章的。就像我在我的论文《人格中精神病性和非精神病性的区分》所说,这种仇恨导致依靠所有知觉器官的投射性认同,包括原始的在感觉印象和意识之间形成联结的原初思维。因此,当死亡本能占据主导地位的时候,过度投射性认同的倾向得到了强化。心理学空间 H.g+yD,c:r

\K@BQ/nPXD#sW0心理学空间LS;GG D w

The early development of the superego is effected by this kind of mental functioning in a way I must now describe. As I have said, the link between infant and breast depends upon projective identification and a capacity to introject projective identification. Failure to introject makes the external object appear intrinsically hostile to curiosity and to the method, namely projective identification, by which the infant seeks to satisfy it. Should the breast be felt as fundamentally understanding, it has been transformed by the infant's envy and hate into any object whose devouring greed has as its aim the introjection of the infant's projective identifications in order to destroy them. This can show in the patient's belief that the analyst strives, by understanding the patient, to drive him insane. The result is an object which, when installed in the patient, exercises the function of a severe and ego-destructive superego. This description is not accurate applied to any object in the paranoid-schizoid position because it supposes a whole-object. The threat that such a whole-object impends contributes to the inability, described by Melanie Klein and others (Segal 1950), of the psychotic patient to face the depressive position and the developments attendant on it. In the paranoid-schizoid phase the bizarre objects composed partially of elements of a persecutory supergo which I described in my paper on 'The differentiation of the psychotic from the non-psychotic personalities' are predominant.

The disturbance of the impulse of curiosity on which all learning depends, and the denial of the mechanism by which it seeks expression, makes normal development impossible. Another feature obtrudes if the course of the analysis is favourable顺利的; problems which in sophisticated language are posed by the question 'Why?' cannot be formulated. The patient appears to have no appreciation of causation and will complain of painful states of mind while persisting in courses of action calculated to produce them. Therefore when the appropriate material presents itself the patient must be shown that he has no interest in why he feels as he does. Elucidation说明 of the limited scope of his curiosity issues in导致 the development of a wider range and an incipient初期的 preoccupation with causes原因. This leads to some modification of conduct 行为的改变which otherwise prolongs his distress.

1j ifcD1J)y/o U0The main conclusions of this paper relate to that state of mind in which the patient's psyche contains an internal object which is opposed to, and destructive of, all links whatsoever from the most primitive (which I have suggested is a normal degree of projective identification) to the most sophisticated forms of verbal communication and the arts.




8h Rt%ey w0In this state of mind emotion is hated; it is felt to be too powerful to be contained by the immature psyche, it is felt to link objects and it gives reality to objects which are not self and therefore inimical有敌意的 to primary narcissism.

E:} By n%] ^0


M{~?D\0The internal object which in its origin was an external breast that refused to introject内摄, harbour涵容, and so modify修正 the baneful force of emotion, is felt, paradoxically, to intensify, relative to the strength of the ego, the emotions against which it initiates the attacks. These attacks on the linking function of emotion lead to an overprominence in the psychotic part of the personality of links which appear to be logical, almost mathematical, but never emotionally reasonable. 死板的理性Consequently the links surviving are perverse违反常情的, cruel残忍的, and sterile枯燥乏味的.
