Example text

3 4 T h e use of *ego' for T (as distinct from the 'other') is one of the meanings given by Freud to das Ich and is to be distinguished from the use of the same term for the mental organization (the 'agency') Intro­ duced i n 1923 i n The Ego and the Id (1923b, Standard Edition, 19) Anna Freud moves from one usage of *ego* to the other for purposes of exposi­ tion, and the context makes her meaning clear. Now sometimes referred to a s the *body self. 3 4 TWO: E G O AND ID 29 A further, highly important acquisition of that young ego is now the establishment of a communication between various parts.

Do not trust them. They may experience a wish to be somewhere in a hurry, and that overrides the traffic rules. They get their driving licence at a moment when their actions are supposed to be under ego control all the time. That seems to be very late in life. What, then, does the ego achieve by building up the various functions; what does it bring about in the personality? To re­ peat: it achieves two extremely important things. The first is to lift the level of the thought processes from the primary process, which I described to you as belonging to the id, to what we now call secondary process: namely, the conscious, logical, rational functioning under ego control—an enormous change.

I know more of what you want, but I have only one real question that was sent to me during the week. It is one that worried me very much indeed, because it showed me that people expected, after presenting the id and the ego, that I would proceed further in an orderly fashion and make you acquainted with the superego. But where should I take the superego from at this point in our proceedings? There is no basis for it. The superego is the product of the forces in the id, and though I have given you the outlines, the principles, the modes of functioning of the id, we have not yet become acquainted with the forces in the id, with the content of the id.
