Fear of Breakdown

D. W. Winnicott

SUMMARY

I have attempted to show that fear of breakdown can be a fear of a past event that has not yet been experienced. The need to experience it is equivalent to a need to remember in terms of the analysis of psychoneurotics.

This idea can be applied to other allied fears, and I have mentioned the fear of death and the search for emptiness.
