'Masochism in Paranoia.': Robert C. Bak.

Sylvan Keiser

Psychoanalytic Quarterly, 1946, Vol. XV, No. 3, p. 285.

The author presents a case of paranoia and also discusses the analysis of the 'Wolf-man' by Brunswick. The elements in the latter's case history are presented with particular emphasis on the masochistic aspects of its development. The homosexual choice regressed into masochistic identification and this form of regression constitutes the prerequisite of a paranoid development. His own patient sought self-castration against which he defended himself with aggressive and litigious phantasies.
