Reflective of a fairly old-fashioned and limited view of psychoanalysis. The author has the courtesy to use a different scholar's definitions for the Jungian terms because he admits that he doesn't understand Jung, but then writes his own pointless polemical 2-page entry about how Lacan was a crackpot who everyone hates without actually mentioning his ideas.

A Critical Dictionary of Psychoanalysis (Penguin Reference)
Provides definitions and critical discussions of the technical terms used in psychoanalysis. A patient is said to lack ego boundaries if he identifies readily with others and does so at the expense of his own sense of identity. Analysts who hold that the infant lives in a state of primary identification with his mother , postulate the gradual development of an ego boundary, i. It corresponds to adolescence and early manhood, during which, according to Erikson, the individual has to redefine his identity, particularly in relation to the parents he is growing away from and the society he is growing into. REALITY PRINCIPLE According to Freud, mental activity is governed by two principles: the pleasure principle and the reality principle, the former leading to relief of instinctual tension by hallucinatory wish-fulfilment see also hallucination , the latter to instinctual gratification by accommodation to the facts of , and the objects existing within, the external world. According to Freud's original formulations, the reality principle is acquired and learned during development , whereas the pleasure principle is innate and primitive.
