Psyche, 23, No. 7, 1969: WOLFGANG LOCH (Nervenklinik der Universität Tübingen, Osianderstr., Germany). ber die Zusammenhänge zwischen Partnerschaft, Struktur und Mythos (On the connections between partnership, structure and mythology)

Psychoanalysis is essentially a method of discovering hidden motives which impart sense and meaning to otherwise irrational symptoms and behaviour. By their very nature, sense and meaning, like self-awareness and language, are conceivable only in an interpersonal relationship, only as a result of mutual acknowledgement by at least two partners. Further, the author attempts to show that the extinction of partnership relations gives rise to basic psychic structures, and that the kind of structure thus built up depends on the quality of feeling states engendered by the relationship ('security and well-being', 'unpleasure-pleasure', 'security and satisfaction'). Finally, it is claimed that the myths of Eden and Oedipus reflect fundamental interactions in early triangular partnerships, expressed in the realm of language; that they are narrations of experiences which had to take place in order to make possible the differentiation between good and evil, illusion and reality. The creation of myth, the dissolution of partnerships, and the formation of psychic structure are interconnected, simultaneous events. The myth as an experienced truth indicates that a stage of autonomy has been reached in regard to the partnership which it depicts.
