Sample text

Aschenbach (1957b) and Mr. H. (1957e); (b) his early attempts at a systematic description of the psychoanalytic process in patients with narcissistic disorders (1951a, 1957e); and (c) his special attention to and early articulation of the difference in the nature of the transference in psychoneuroses and in narcissistic disturbances (1951a). These early works clearly contain a clinical grasp and the germs of some of his later conceptualizations on narcissism. It was undoubtedly his emphasis upon introspection and empathy as the primary ingredients of the psychoanalytic method that led him to his most significant contributions.

He does not assert that our psychoanalytic observations are always purely introspective-empathic. They may often be combined with other forms of observation, even in the analytic situation. But introspection and empathy are never absent from psychological observation and may also be used exclusively, as in self-analysis. Kohut systematically examines a number of key concepts to see if they are psychologic, sociologic, or biologic in nature and to demonstrate that "the observational method defines the contents and the limits of the observed field .

He offers us some additional guidelines for a critical evaluation of our theories and theorizing. Considering, for instance, hypotheses about early psychological states, he acknowledges that some of them " . . may not stand on very firm ground when contemplated in isolation, they must support each other by their internal consistency and cohesion when we form our tentative constructions . . and they must be checked against the empirical data obtained from the direct observation of children and from childhood memories of adults.
