Foundations of Psycho-Social Analysis, Part IIAbstract
After a brief summary of the previously published Part I, there is a brief treatment of the historical attempt to deal with the material and the convulsive reaction and defensive rejection which each has triggered. A section looking at the nature of anxiety defence is then followed by an examination of the path of approach used in reaching the present point of breakthrough. The fundamental question of the limits and mechanisms of very early memory completes the theoretical foundation. 50 references to field literature provide pointers to further reading.
