So when adolescents begin to suffer, it is almost always due to depressive states of some kind, which take the form, in their unconscious phantasies and their dreams, of depressive anxieties about the damage wrought to the object by their search for knowledge. To emerge from their state of confusion they have to rediscover their desire to understand, which has its childish foundations in the desire to enter into the mother’s body, where the truth of all things is originally contained. This reawakens all the childish anxieties relating to greed, envy and jealousy.
Now I would like to highlight the problem of knowledge, on the one hand, and that of confusion on the other, and to describe the adolescent putting the emphasis on the problem of confusion. In psychoanalysis we find ourselves facing various types of confusion. The main ones are: confusion between good and evil, confusion between the different parts of the body and the different ways in which these parts can exist in relation to the outside world and other people, the confusion between male and female; and between adult and child.
These two cases are intended to show the important role of the group as a social pattern in adolescence, indicating that no matter how delinquent or anti-social it may appear vis-à-vis the adult world, it is a holding position in relation to the splitting processes. By means of the dissemination of parts of the self into members of the group, amelioration of the masturbatory urge is achieved and social processes are set in train which foster the gradual lessening of the splitting, diminution of the omnipotence, and easing of persecutory anxiety through achievement in the real world.
