NETO, Alfredo Naffah. Falso self on borderline pathology in winnicott's thought: historic antecedents and subsequent developments . Nat. hum. [online]. 2010, vol.12, n.2, pp. 1-18. ISSN 1517-2430.

This article investigates the theoretical background of Winnicott's concepts of false self and borderline pathology in the history of psychoanalysis (reaching Ferenczi, Faribairn and H. Deutsch). Afterwards, it describes Winnicott's formulations of those concepts, pointing out their inconclusiveness. Finally, it makes an effort to develop those concepts, following Winnicott's steps and clinical evidences.

Keywords : false self; borderline pathology; Fairbairn; Deutsch; Winnicott.
