Abstract

The initial theoretical fantasy of an unmediated relation to objects is confronted here with the progressive devaluation of the object in Freudian psychoanalysis, where the ego appears as sovereign and relations to objects vicissitudes of a self-relation. However other moments in Freud's work hint at 'breaches' in narcissism, and the possibility of a determinative originary exposure.
