Shielding An Associative Organizer

  • Norbert Freedman
  • Stanley Grand


It is one of the hallmarks of Freud’s genius that he takes a concept, a single word, and endows it with myriad meanings and expanding significance. For example, the words shield, sheath, and crust can be found through five decades of Freud’s writings. In tracing the use of these words, one witnesses both the evolution of psychoanalytic thought and its consistent adherence to principles.
