Example text

Some of the stretcher-bearers, in trying to adapt to the “new times”, advocate “modernisation” through transplanting or implanting reasoning or, at best, models stemming from extraneous fields or disciplines. Laxity in one’s own analytic education, the unavoidable outcome of popularisation by banality, has another unavoidable consequence: many of the self-styled “admirers” abandon ship when realising the impossible nature of the promises. A great many members of this group display the true face of enthusiastic admiration, passing almost instantaneously to undisguised hate and attack: from idolatry to iconoclasm.

Melanie Klein seemed to do that for psychoanalysis. BION What! You don’t mean to say you are a Kleinian?
