TRINCA, Walter. The determinative mental system of envy. Rev. bras. psicanál [online]. 2009, vol.43, n.3, pp. 51-58. ISSN 0486-641X.

Envy as a clinical factor originates from the intensification of hate. It is mobilized by the death pulsion turned against the envious subject itself. Hate has as its consequence the distancing of contact with the envious person and his own inner being. A situation that would lead to the emptying of the self, in case envy would not emerge in its sensorial form as a compensatory measure to this emptying process. This has to do with the sensoriality of hate directed towards what evokes the insufficiencies of the envious person having in mind removing the source of sufferance. The hate towards the beneficiary of what is desired replaces the hate of the envious person against himself. Such sensoriality aims at keeping something about the validity and kindness of the envious person. The author considers that in this way it is not necessary to alter the basic elements of the classical kleinian conception of envy.
