Example text

1975a). 1 A contribution to the problem of sublimation and its relation to processes of internalization (1939/42) This paper is an expanded version of Paula Heimann’s membership paper which she read to the British PsychoAnalytical Society in July 1939. It was published in the International Journal of Psycho-Analysis 13(1) (1942), and was her first psychoanalytic publication. In this paper my aim is to point out and discuss certain aspects of the sublimatory processes which in my opinion have not so far been investigated or perhaps sufficiently described.

Along with the conscious feeling of triumph at having successfully attacked the bad woman went an unconscious feeling of guilt. This woman who was her rival and who compelled her to follow a way she did not want to go—to the ‘right’—is also identified with her mother and me whom she, at the same time, loved and admired.

Moreover, the devils were a cover for her own sadistic and destructive impulses, which she disowned and personified in them. I will now endeavour to explain how this world full of devils inside her had come about. The memory-traces of psychical experience, past and present, are not static imprints like photographs, but moving and living dramas, like never-ending scenes on a stage. These inner dramas are composed of the subject and her instinctual impulses towards her original objects (father, mother, brother, and their later substitutes, up to and including the analyst), who are seen as they had been felt and are felt to be under the impact of her impulses; in addition, the objects also display her own impulses.
