Winnicott’s introduction to his collection of essays The Maturational Processes and the Facilitating Environment summarises the book’s main themes: a carrying back of the application of Freud’s theories to infancy, dependence in early infancy, the antisocial tendency as a reaction to deprivation rather than privation, the relation of more psychotic disorders to environmental factors, and of psycho-neurosis to natural personal conflict.
