Who is Overlooking Whose Reality? Commentary on Tabin's “Freud's Shift From the Seduction Theory Some Overlooked Reality Factors”

Lewis Aron, Ph.D. and Jay Frankel, Ph.D.

Johanna Krout Tabin (1993) continues the long tradition of casting aspersions on Ferenczi's sanity at the end of his life. She wrote that his personal problems blighted the value of his contributions. She credited Freud with the idea that the child splits the ego in response to sexual abuse. We question her attribution of this idea to Freud and instead document that this was one of Ferenczi's central contributions toward the end of his life. We challenge her judgment of Ferenczi's personal problems, and we comment on the Freud–Ferenczi relationship, particularly the handling of Ferenczi's final paper.
