Rodolfo Moguillansky begins with a beautiful introduction in which he clearly, cleverly, and didactically summarises the theoretical bases of psychoanalysis. He is especially adept at concepts that are not the easiest to explain and that he later uses to typify humiliation and shame. In both humiliation and shame there is a distance from the ego ideal, although humiliation includes a narcissistic injury of the ego. Moguillansky presents diagrams in which he explains the passage to a heroic identification organised by the ego due to a narcissistic injury produced by humiliation in an attempt to destroy the agent of the injury. As Moguillansky points out, dreams in traumatic neuroses are beyond the pattern of the pleasure principle. Adolf Eichmann showed no signs of shame, but only complained because he had wasted his career as an official member of the Third Reich.
