Psychiatric Quarterly. XXXV, 1961: A Review of the Psychoanalytic Literature on Passivity. Henry Harper Hart. Pp. 331-352.

This extensive review points up the great confusion in the literature regarding the use of the term passivity and the understanding of its clinical forms. In general it is agreed that passivity is primarily the expression of a weak ego that is prone to regression, but the many frames of reference (such as passive-aggressive, masculine-feminine) are blurred and the processes go unexplained. The review provides a useful outline for the needed clarifications.
