Melanie Klein, little interested in Freud's idea of primary narcissism, would, I think, have appreciated the Symington approach, based as it is on relationships to internal objects and the repudiation of such relationships. Symington believes that narcissism, thus produced, is the ultimate source of psychopathology in general.
Narcissism: A New Theory
In addition to many clinical examples from his practice, extensive use is made of Tolstoy's Anna Karenina to illustrate his thesis in many ways. Symington realized that he was not sure what narcissism was. So with commendable self-discipline, as a busy psychoanalyst, he put aside twenty minutes every day to think about this topic, later to discuss his notes with psychoanalytic colleagues.
