References to texts by Sigmund Freud

P25: Freud writes: ‘It may well be that, before ego and id have become sharply differentiated and before a super–ego has been developed, the mental apparatus employs different modes of defence from those which it practises after these levels of organization have been reached.  * Inhibitions, Symptoms and Anxiety’, International P.A. Library, No. 28.

P38 (no reference is given for this conclusion): My conclusions are in agreement with Freud’s hypotheses, according to which the fixation–points of dementia praecox and paranoia are to be sought in the narcissistic stage, that of dementia praecox preceding that of paranoia.
