Example text

The drastic difference in view could spring from a variety of roots. (a) From differing concepts of active imagination. There is indeed a tendency to regard almost any fantasy as active imagination, a tendency which I have commented upon elsewhere (1956), and I have suggested that the term should be used only when the fantasy takes on an object quality to which the ego consciously relates. (b) From differences in the transference phenomena due to typological differences between patients. (c) From differences in analytic procedure arising from differences in the personality structure of the analysts.

At first I was inclined to think the extended usage was objectionable, because it blurred its original negative meaning and so opened the door to almost any unconscious behaviour by the analyst. Yet the change in our understanding of transference as a whole is better reflected by the wider usage, for participation mystique, projection and introjection can play valuable, even essential, parts in analytic procedures (cf. Money-Kyrle, 1956). A solution to the quandary is made possible by dividing the general heading into two and referring to counter-transference illusion and counter-transference syntony.

If we keep to this principle fruitless regression will not occur, because past and present are constantly kept in relation with one another and only those causes that actually operate in the present are taken up by the patient. Where then does the transference come into the picture? It provides good conditions for investigating this ‘actual situation’, so long as the essential simplicity and sufficient ‘naturalness’ of the interview is maintained and the analysis conducted with regard to the true relationship factor as well as to the illusions that appear alongside it.
