Esther Bick

This classic, highly condensed paper about the conditions that are necessary for Klein's “splitting and idealization” to take place, was read to the 25th International Psychoanalytic Congress in Copenhagen in 1967 and has been extremely influential, especially regarding the understanding of two-dimensional features of personality structure. According to Shirley Hoxter, Bick intended it “as a preliminary communication only but she was never contented with attempts to expand it in later writings.” (Hoxter 1988, p. 103)
