Sample text

It is extremely difficult for young people to keep up this denial of psychic reality when they begin to care about someone else. It is precisely at this time that affection for another individual begins to manifest itself and so, from denial, the depressive position emerges with regard to the internal object. So when adolescents begin to suffer, it is almost always due to depressive states of some kind, which take the form, in their unconscious phantasies and their dreams, of depressive anxieties about the damage wrought to the object by their search for knowledge.

When the child begins to go to school during the years that we call the latency period, the concept of learning is concentrated mostly on learning the names of things. When the child learns the name for something he believes he knows everything about that thing: if a small child learns that an object is called an aeroplane, not only does he believe that he can fly one but he believes he can make one and, when he begins to build a small toy aeroplane, this in his mind is a real aeroplane. The child in the latency period who is able to use language in this concrete way and believes he knows everything about something when he knows its name, is exercising his sense of omniscience, but this sense of omniscience is different from the parent’s omniscience, in as much as it is based on a constriction of the imagination.

Then there is the adolescent’s problem that comes out very forcefully in this girl, of tolerating the pain of depressive states —the depressive states that are precipitated through awareness of violence, ruthlessness, greed or envy towards loved objects in both the internal and external worlds. And I think there is in particular something one finds in very intelligent adolescents, as this girl is: namely the damage that is thought to be done to one’s loved object through a greed for knowledge or the hunger for knowledge in the service of ambition.
