J. Bleger, who considers himself very close to the Kleinian School, introduced another perspective regarding the Psychotic Mode of mental functioning. His emphases on Symbiosis as a primary state of the mind, and the evolution of discrimination departing from this primitive state of non-ego state, distances him from the Kleinian cannon, centered as it is on the resolution of primitive anxieties for the primitive ego. However, the application of his approach to the analysis of the psychoanalytic setting, opens the door to new insights on the psychoanalytic situation.

Keywords: Psychosis, Symbiosis, Ambiguity, Separation-Discrimination, The Psychoanalytic Setting
