Imre Hermann

Third and Fourth Quarters, 1928.

September 21, 1928. Dr. G. Róheim:

a. Clinical notes on the problem of the super-ego. Case of a patient in whom the connections in development between the formation

of the super-ego, identification with the father and homosexuality could be traced.

b. Contribution to the theory of sublimation. Tendency to develop in the direction of play.

October 12, 1928. Dr. S. Pfeifer: A case of erotomania. An unmarried woman of thirty-five had a morbid compulsion to make advances to men in order to confirm the idea that she was desired and to deny her own homosexuality. Coitus was excluded. Satisfaction was attained in masturbation only. The masturbation-phantasies were concerned exclusively with women or with her own body. In her extraordinarily numerous flirtations gratification was incomplete; it was narcissistic and obtained by the aid of unconscious transformation of the male into female objects. Her chief symptom was a distressing sense of depersonalization, always at the points where reality threatened to invade her consciousness, i.e. when she could not avoid becoming aware of her relation to her sister (mother-image), with whom she was in love. At the same time she developed delusions of persecution, the persecutors being always women. Moreover, the homosexual objects of the phantasy were made impersonal (? depersonalization). One result of the parallel neurotic defence of the positive Oedipus conflict was a simultaneously existing obsessional neurosis.
