About The Book

‘Didier Anzieu (1985) theorized on the skin-ego, the first narcissistic envelope on which the feeling of well-being is based’, suggesting for example that ‘narcissistic personalities…possess an unusually thick skin ego; in contrast, masochistic and borderline personalities show remarkably thin skin ego’. Anzieu would extend the concept to a broader notion of “psychic envelope”, exploring for example the idea of ‘the dream envelope. This is the name Didier Anzieu gives to the visual dream-film, the fine, ephemeral membrane which he thinks of as replacing the tactile envelope of the ego’s vulnerable skin’.
