The Psychoanalytic Study of Society. XIV. 1989: The False Face: Observations on the Reactions to Maskers and Strangers. Werner Muensterberger. Pp. 261-279.

John J. Hartman

Muensterberger discusses the affective experience of intimidation of the spectator who meets a person wearing a "false face." He employs field research, clinical data, and child observation to back his assertion that an experience of acute disorientation, folie du doute, occurs when encountering a masker. Data from tribal traditions and legends, field observation in Bali, and observation of Western children suggest the connection between reactions to masking and stranger anxiety in infancy.
