Group A includes genuine interest in the workings of nature in general and bodies in particular, sexual curiosity, a concern with helping others, and counterdependent defenses against being sick herself. Group B includes a strong desire to please her parents' thwarted longings to be educated as professionals, identification with their social-class aspirations, their anxieties about their daughter's future security, and so on.
The term relational directly refers to (internal and external) relationships and is easily recognizable and also broadly applicable outside the analytic context; the term intersubjective, in emphasizing the interaction of two subjective worlds (to be distinguished from Stern's (1985) use of the term intersubjective, which refers to a distinctive form of relatedness), includes more easily, when applied to the analytic arena, the full range of self experience in which the relational dimension shifts between foreground and background.
The simple distinction between internality and externality, although a very useful starting point, is not sufficient to distinguish true from false experience. What is crucial is the extent to which internal and external considerations, self and other, have been balanced and reconciled. Loewald addresses himself to this process more than any other major psychoanalytic theorist. In the context of generational conflict and fratricide Loewald (1978) defines the self as "an atonement structure" and repeatedly depicts the richest form of experience as one which overcomes the compulsive separation between self and other, inside and outside, on different levels of organization.
