Charles Rycroft

This note reports a clinical observation bearing on the question as to how and when the ego loses its infantile capacity for denying objective sources of pain and anxiety. It is suggested that the establishment of the super-ego, which introduces guilt into the psychic economy, results in a restriction of the efficacy of the mechanism of denial and that the 'pain' resulting from the recognition of objective reality is used by the ego partly to satisfy the unconscious need for punishment.
