Self-reproaches blame the beloved object by Sigmund Freud

02/09/2015 - Melancholy / Mourning / Sigmund Freud

We may get the key of the clinical picture by perceiving that reproaches which patient is addressed are actually blaming a beloved object, that he has turned against his ego.

On obtient ainsi la clef du tableau clinique en percevant que les reproches que s’adresse le malade sont en fait des reproches à un objet d’amour qu’il a retournés contre son moi.

FREUD S., Deuil et mélancolie (1917), PBP, Paris, 2011, p. 54
