John J. Hartman

Morton employs Winnicott's notions of the transitional object and transitional phenomena to illuminate a problem in Central Australian ethnography dealing with the relationship between women, children, and sacred objects. He presents two myths collected by Róheim and uses Winnicott's psychoanalytic concepts to explain them. He concludes with some critical remarks on Herdt's use of the transitional object concept in his study of the Sambia of New Guinea.
