ABSTRACT

So unstable an equilibrium requires still further measures to support it. He turns then to anyone of

a number ·of unconscious devices, which may be classified as blind spots, compartmentalizing, rationalizing, excessive self-control, arbitrary rightness, _elusiveness, and cynicism. We shall not attempt to discuss these phenomena per se-that would be too intensive a taskbut will show only how they are employed in connection with conflicts.
