Abstract:
Thesis by publication of eight publications. Six out of eight of the articles included in this portfolio were written while in the U.S. The two earliest papers, written while still living in London in the early stages of my career, reflect the newness of my efforts to think about primitive mental states and show the fundamental basic assumption of the Tavistock training culture, that a focus on the inner world is, indeed, of value and interest. This, in itself, cannot be taken for granted. This point of view is both precious and vulnerable to a host of seductive assaults that come in many forms, such as science, popular appeal, symptom relief and profitability. What I have here called "assaults" might be viewed by many as unquestionable standards of the greater good Who can argue with evidence, popularity, feeling better, and staying in the black?
