Sample text

For the Kleinians, unfortunately, the good and the bad object are one and the same! Let's try to look at the baby's relation to the object in some other way, one amongst many. After all, there is never just one way to observe, one always observes one's own understanding of things rather than understanding what is observed in itself.

The penis inside the mother is the thing that causes the break in unity with the good.
