In this chapter, the author details his reasons for the assertion and explores some alternative ideas on the opening phase of the analytic situation. It focuses on the beginning phase of analytic treatment, and discusses the question of analyzability and the issues that come up around the concept of the unobjectionable transference. Sheldon Bach, Heinz Kohut, and Winnicott have written about patients who are unable at the beginning of treatment to observe themselves in this manner. In Bach's notions of anti-worlds, he has given us a more elaborated version of the extent to which people must cover their true selves, and how they create these worlds to allow some sense of spontaneity in their psychological lives. When Sigmund Freud makes the point he is not referring to patients with narcissistic vulnerabilities, but rather he is stating that anyone needs to develop a sense of trust to hear interpretative comments.
