INTRODUCTORY REMARKS

This book is an effort to explain and understand that split in psychoanalytic psychological terms and by way of psychoanalytic theory. We shall comprehend this psychological state as a pathological one, a symptom of a disorder rather than a moral failing. I will extend this explanation to encompass a variety of similar psychological symptoms and so aim to raise our consciousness as to the far-ranging prevalence of this vertical split.
