An attempt is made in this paper to describe and evaluate some of the elements in the sensory functions of the perceiving ego. Perception in general is regarded as an adaptive process toward an equilibrium which develops in accordance with the defensive and constructive functions of the ego. Klein describes some of the adaptive mechanisms observable in perception and then indicates how these functions may serve in the total ego structure. This highly specialized, abstract and conceptual construction makes for difficult but worthwhile reading.
