The 24 ADOLESCENCE “parents together” (primary scene or combined object, in psychoanalytical terminology) are experienced as having the power to do anything, that is to say as omnipotent and omniscient. These two qualities—the omniscience of the breast and the omnipotence of the combined object—are the object of the most intense envy on the part of the child and it is this that he wants to have most from his parents. This seems to arise very early on, when the child becomes able to use language, which represents the parental ownership of omniscience and omnipotence.
In other words, if you think that adolescent sexuality is principally driven by a search to satisfy desire, either you approve of it, saying that it is a good thing, or you disapprove of it considering it a bad thing, but you do not understand the essence of it, because the pressing need derives from the confusion that the adolescent is trying to sort out. Dr Nissim pointed out the difference between the Kleinian and the Freudian approach, with regard to Dr Meltzer’s comments on sexuality. Dr Meltzer added that in fact, Freud tended to consider sexuality from the point of view of the id rather than that of the ego.
A most lucid description of this will be found in Hanna Segal’s book (Segal, 1964). I have discussed how the return of severe splitting processes, characteristic of infancy and early childhood, which attends the adolescent flux, requires externalization in group life so that the omnipotence and confusional states precipitated by the return of masturbation at puberty may be worked through. The implications for sociological comprehension of the “adolescent world” as a social institution are apparent: (1) Individual psychotherapeutic work should be directed toward the isolated individual, to promote the socialization of his conflicts.
