In this letter, Winnicott reassures Melanie Klein that he has not forgotten all she has taught him about the concept of the word ‘internal’, but he says that the BPAS is very divided in how it understands this term. He adds that Klein’s follower and colleague Hanna Segal did not quite differentiate between incorporation and magical introjection in her presentation on the word ‘internal’ in her paper to the Society.
