Freud’s theoretical model constituted an obstacle in this context, for Freud’s metapsychology rested solidly and consistently on the theory of neurosis. Looking back on the numerous psychoanalytical writings on borderline disorders, it becomes apparent that they are generally limited by two mistakes. One dates back to Freud and the fact that he based his theory of personality on studies of the structure and psychic mechanisms of neurosis. The other originates in the attempt to expand the theory of the particular mechanisms of psychosis to include a broad borderline spectrum ranging from hospitalized patients to those on the analyst’s couch.

Adler (1975) and Adler and Buie (1979) attempted to build bridges between Winnicott and these egopsychologically inspired object-relations theorists, and work from the assumption that borderline patients have regressed to a phase where object constancy has yet to be firmly established, and where the ability to recall the supportive image of a caregiver figure has been temporarily lost. 32 Early mother–child relationships In recent years Fonagy et al. 2 Their explanation of borderline pathology is based on observations of a normal child’s development of the ability to make thoughts and emotions the object of reflection and in consequence to be able to distinguish the subjective world from the objective one.

Theories of object-relations have been right to emphasize the significance of the object to the development of the child. Yet they often forget that this significance is deeply embedded in the passionate ‘language’ spoken by mother and child. French psychoanalysis has supplemented the concept of the object as we know it from objectrelations theory with the idea of the mother as a significant mediator of sexual discourse. In other words, the mother leads the child into the psychosexual register. Laplanche (1989, 1997, 1999) has 34 Early mother–child relationships argued for a theory he calls general seduction, Aulagnier (2001 [1975]) spoke of a form of verbal violence against the childish psyche, and Green (2000b) has consistently upheld the classical theory of the drives, without which he believes we would never be able to fully understand the reactions – be they normal or pathological – of children to their surroundings.
