James F. Bing

In this brief paper, Schafer discusses how Kohut's theories are remiss because they do not coincide well enough with his "action language" theories. There are three areas in which Schafer is particularly critical: 1) where there are metapsychological residues; 2) where Kohut resorts too much to the idea that he has all the answers, which Schafer calls "residues of positivism"; and 3) where there are evidences of what he calls the problem of multiple selves. In brief, he thinks that Kohut's theories could be corrected if more of Schafer's action language concepts were introduced and if they contained less traditional Freudian theory.
