Analyst Envy in Working With an Artist: Four Scenes.
By: Weisel-Barth, Joye. Psychoanalytic Dialogues, 2008, Vol. 18 Issue 6, p735-757, 23p, 1 Black and White Photograph Abstract: The paper describes a rich analytic relationship with an artist patient in which countertransference feelings of envy surfaced. The analyst's examination of her envy led to a review and reassessment of the concept of envy in psychoanalysis. I propose here that envy is a complex affect that moves on a continuum from a fairly benign combination of admiration and desire to more malignant emotional states, described by Melanie Klein and her followers. Malignant envy may lead to anger, fury, and murderous rage. A more benign form of envy, which emerged for the analyst in the treatment, resulted in psychic support for and validation of the patient as well as a shift in personal identifications and new motivational directions for the analyst.

Melanie Klein and Envy: A Static Totalitarian Script or a Sample of our Protean Theories? Commentary on Paper by Joye Weisel-Barth.
By: Likierman, Meira. Psychoanalytic Dialogues, 2008, Vol. 18 Issue 6, p766-775, 10p Abstract: I agree with Joye Weisel-Barth's main point. But I regret her impression that Klein “monopolized” envy. In the world of ideas, a concept cannot be appropriated as if it has been bought. We acknowledge the originator, but the concept belongs to our collective heritage. It is open at all hours and there is no entry fee. Quite apart from this, Klein's concept is not simple. I have discussed elsewhere the conflicting currents in her paper on envy and questioned traditional views. But even for Klein herself, envy is never isolated. It is always in a dynamic conflict with love. To my mind, Klein's envy was loaded with a further responsibility: to remind us of the worst in our nature. If we accept the full humanity of our patients, we must remain receptive to their cruelty as well as their love. In my own thinking, envy has a subtle relationship with admiration and is ever shifting on a spectrum, from a point of positive emulation to a point of destructive attack. Lastly, I enjoyed Joye's clinical work. But I expressed deep concern about the paedophilic activities disclosed by the patient. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] DOI: 10.1080/10481880802473241 (AN 35753146)
Envy: the canker in the bud.
By: Payton, Caroline. Psychodynamic Practice, May2007, Vol. 13 Issue 2, p183-195, 13p Abstract: This paper attempts to explore the origins and mechanisms of envy through the relationship between two fictional sisters, Ruth and Elizabeth, in the short novel Sin by Josephine Hart (1992/1996, p. 138) and draw some parallels with case material. It will develop the hypothesis that the desire behind envy is not only to destroy the good that the envied one has, but also to become who the envied one is in order to have what they have. It will also show how this compulsion, which seeks basically to destroy and supplant, arises from an infant's failure to retain goodness for itself, resulting in a deep sense of unworthiness. Melanie Klein's assertion that envy arises in the very early dyadic stage of development is central to the way in which it is experienced, and this will be explored. Through its obsession with what is projected outside of the self, envy inherently alienates the envier from himself and is ultimately destined to fail in its desire, resulting only in self-destruction. Sin concerns the relationship between two first cousins, thrown together as 'sisters'. It is the story of envy pursued with cold and calculated precision. It illustrates in painful detail the desire of the envier, Ruth, the narrator, to destroy the goodness that she envies and to become the envied one, Elizabeth. It offers its own hypothesis about how the envied one protects herself against envy without becoming contaminated by these destructive impulses and the aggressive desire for retaliation. Finally, it reveals the terror of annihilation that envy defends against and how, indeed whether, it is possible to confront this underlying threat.

‘Go! Sterilise the fertile with thy rage’ Envy as embittered desire.
By: Meredith-Owen, William. Journal of Analytical Psychology, Sep2008, Vol. 53 Issue 4, p459-480, 22p Abstract: This paper is concerned with the operation of envy: it considers its origins and their repercussions, in particular its compulsion to sterilize the evidence of fertility, exemplified by Roger Money-Kyrle's evocation of ‘the parental intercourse as the supremely creative act’. The inevitable impact on the analytic relationship is considered in the context of two clinical examples of impasse. It is argued that such fundamentally negative transferences, one full of overt aggression and enactment, the other more covertly sabotaging, derive from envious retaliatory impulses originating in experiences—whether phantasied or factual—of exclusion from the anticipated ‘good’. Significant recent Jungian contributions to this area are considered and the absence of references to ‘envy’—so characteristic of Kleinian discourse—is noted. The ongoing value of integrating Jungian and Kleinian approaches is affirmed. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] DOI: 10.1111/j.1468-5922.2008.00741.x (AN 34081379)
The Roots of Envy: The Unaesthetic Experience of the Tantalized/Dispossessed Self.
By: Gerhardt, Julie. Psychoanalytic Dialogues, 2009, Vol. 19 Issue 3, p267-293, 27p Abstract: In this paper I suggest that no matter how omnipotent, destructive, or perverse the currents of entitlement and hatred are that envy coils around, envy often serves as a fig-leaf for desire—a psychic figuration of refused desire. This claim invites us to consider the vicissitudes of maternal subjectivity in order to understand the patient's unconscious envy. Whereas Klein's focused on the wish to spoil the good object or take something away from her, my emphasis is on the self and the archaic wish/need to feel at-one-with/the same as the object which, when not realized, can transform into destructive envy. This paper attempts to develop the following three claims: (a) the idea of lack, abjection and/or humiliation as a narcissistic precondition for unconscious envy; (b) envy as a phantasied, pre-emptive means of identifying with the object once normal identificatory processes have gone awry (Benjamin, J., 1988, 1995); and (c) the role of the analyst's subjectivity and unconscious communication in provoking or mitigating the patient's unconscious envy (Spillius, 1993)—specifically, the analyst's unconscious countertransference identification.

Envy and the Negative Therapeutic Reaction.
By: Newsome, Faye. Modern Psychoanalysis, 2004, Vol. 29 Issue 1, p43-48, 6p Abstract: The psychoanalytic literature often traces the roots of negative therapeutic reactions to an inability to tolerate the experience of envy. Allowing conscious recognition of the envy would require an ability to be tolerant of one's dependence on the goodness of an object. The article explores the connections between envy, narcissism, negative therapeutic reactions, revenge, and protection of the object field of the mind. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] (AN 16389020)

Envy and Jealousy.
(cover story) By: Aanderson, Robert E.. American Journal of Psychotherapy, 2002, Vol. 56 Issue 4, p455, 25p Abstract: Clinical study of envy and jealousy in the psychotherapy situation indicates that these two states of mind are biopsychosocial response patterns involving the perceptual, cognitive, affective, and intentional mental functions. These response patterns are evoked by perceptual events that inform the individual of one's relative position vis-à-vis the requirements of one's life. Once these patterns can be discerned in the patient, the clinician is able to hear things in the psychotherapy situation not previously beard and understand, interpret, and work through conflict in a new and useful way. In this paper psychotherapy paradigms and strategies are discussed from the new perspective afforded by the psychology of envy and jealousy. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] (AN 8791347)
The envious mind.
By: Miceli, Maria; Castelfranchi, Cristiano. Cognition & Emotion, Apr2007, Vol. 21 Issue 3, p449-479, 31p Abstract: This work provides an analysis of the basic cognitive components of envy. In particular, the roles played by the envious party's social comparison with, and ill will against, the better off are emphasised. The ill will component is characterised by the envier's ultimate goal or wish that the envied suffer some harm, and is distinguished from resentment and sense of injustice, which have often been considered part of envy. The reprehensible nature of envy is discussed, and traced back to the analysis of its components. Finally, we explore both points of overlap and distinguishing features between envy and other emotions such as jealousy or emulation, and make a few general remarks, pointing to the necessity of overcoming conceptual looseness in the notion of envy.
