Jones' reappraisal of emotional improvement in early adolescence and past clarifies the strengths and weaknesses of such conventional recommendations as childish sexuality, item family members, internalization, splitting, and the emergence of the dynamic unconscious. The amazing terminus of his day trip, furthermore, is the radical point of view at the self as an emergent phenomenon reflecting the mixing of affective and symbolic processing systems.
