International Journal of Psychoanalysis. XXXV, 1954: Therapeutic Problems in the Analysis of the 'Normal' Candidate. Maxwell Gitelson. Pp. 174-183.

The 'normal' candidate suffers a disturbance in his 'feeling relationship', living behind an environmentally patterned façade. This façade, culturally determined, is itself a resistance, preventing the individual from achieving that true freedom essential for the practice of analysis. Such 'normals' are adapted to a particular culture, and this normality does not ensure freedom from grave degrees of anxiety, conflict, and tension states. With such candidates it is necessary to mobilize conflict made latent by the culture. Only thus can one analyze the vicissitudes of the libido itself.
