Title: Reflections on the Case of Ellen West. An anthropological-clinical approach, by Binswanger
Author: Berlinck, MT
Magtaz, AC
Abstract: The 'Case of Ellen West' is an excellent illustration of why anorexia is not merely a food problem. It reveals a conflict between the ego and the supergo, therefore representing a narcissistic neurosis. The severity of the supergo is based on the rules for fulfilling ideals. The higher the ideals, the less they can be satisfied. For the ego to be the object of loving investment by the supergo, the ego must try to be seen as what it is not, namely, the ideal.
