The Child is an examination of the structure and dynamics of the earliest developments of ego and individuality. In it we progress from the primal relationship of a child and mother through to the emergence of the ego-Self constellation, via the child's relationship to its own body, its Self, the Thou and being-in-the-world. We move from the matriarchate to the patriarchate; from "participation mystique" to the "standpoint of the Self around which the ego revolves as around the sun".
