Jones' reappraisal of emotional improvement in early youth and past clarifies the strengths and weaknesses of such conventional options as childish sexuality, item family, internalization, splitting, and the emergence of the dynamic unconscious. The superb terminus of his expedition, additionally, is the radical standpoint at the self as an emergent phenomenon reflecting the mixing of affective and symbolic processing systems.
