In this article, Winnicott attempts to classify bodily changes and symptoms that belong to normal and abnormal emotional states. He discusses the understanding of personal instinctual life and of interpersonal relationships, the understanding of moods and of the origin of ideas of persecution both within (hypochondria) and externally, and the understanding of primitive emotional tasks, such as the development of a relationship to external reality, integration of the personality and the sense of body.
