While reading this I thought Harry Guntrip coolest name ever? Here's my summary: The main idea here is that neurosis, depression, etc are epiphenomenon arising from a more fundamental schizoid core. It sounds exotic but shapes the ego experience of most all? The depressive diagnosis "Man's greatest and While reading this I thought Harry Guntrip coolest name ever?
The depressive diagnosis "Man's greatest and most consistent self-deception" has people fixing attention on their badness instead of their weakness; given the natural preference to feel strong, there are many barriers to bringing ego-weakness to conscious thought. Basic ego-weakness leads to reactive behavior that lie open on the surface for all to see.
Detachment, obsessional self-mastery, unselfish servicableness to others. We find security by projecting comforting images on the universe.
The scientific materialist's "Iron-chain-of-necessity", or the religious believer's father-image. Since ancient Greece, antisocial instincts have been diagnosed as epidemic in human nature. We convincingly rationalize a more alarming fear, a "flight from life at deep mental levels" induced by failure of ego formation, and an inadequacy felt or factual in coping with life.
Libidinal and anti-libidinal drives react differently in the face of an uncaring and scary outside world, and the patterns of the central ego forms in an adversarial reaction. The therapeautic process is to relax mental fortifications and make room for a real person among the "collection of reactions to impingements".
Anyways, of the analysts I've read so far, I think I'd most like to have a beer with Guntrip! Extremely important seminal work on object-relations theory as it applies to people on the schizoid continuum. Guntrip lays out how the persecuted ego splits off and seeks refuge from a parent who is both abandoning and enveloping. It was a revelation to me. I now understand how and why I am the way I am.

Quotes from Schizoid Phenomen Patients usually call it 'depression', but it lacks the heavy, black, inner sense of brooding, of anger and of guilt, which are not difficult to discover in classic depression.
Depression is really a more extraverted state of mind, which, while the patient is turning his aggression inwards against himself, is part of a struggle not to break out into overt angry and aggressive behaviour. The states described above are rather the 'schizoid states'. They are definitely introverted. Depression is object-relational.
The schizoid person has renounced objects, even though he still needs them. Welcome back. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

Schizoid Phenomena, Object Relations and the Self
Henry James Samuel Guntrip 29 May — was a British psychologist known for his major contributions to object relations theory or school of Freudian thought. He was described by Dr. Jock Sutherland as "one of the psychoanalytic immortals". Guntrip's Personality Structure and Human Interaction organised, critiqued and synthesised the theories of major psychoanalysts, including Melanie Klein , Ronald Fairbairn , D. Winnicott , and Michael Balint. Although he accepted many of Freud's theories, he also advanced his own ideas and criticised Freud as being too based on biology in general, and instincts in particular, and therefore being, in Guntrip's belief, dehumanising. He also drew heavily on the object relational approach of Fairbairn and Winnicott.
