Nagera explores in detail the effects of the dead brother’s absence/ 28 B O U N DA R I E S A N D B R I D G E S presence on van Gogh, which he believes haunted the painter all his life. He writes: The brother, being stillborn, had never had an identity of his own in reality, but for this very reason an ideal one had been created in the phantasy life of the parents. He would have been the perfect child, the compendium of all virtue, ability and kindness. He would always have done everything right, and especially where Vincent failed, the other, the dead Vincent, would have been successful.
This can eventually lead to disturbances in the process of psychological development, reality-testing, and object-relationships. I think that at the origin of such dissociative phenomena there is a failed adaptation, specifically in the area of identification with a good object: either because such an object was missing from the child’s physical or emotional universe, or because she is unable for some reason or other to relate to it. Alternatively, the dissociation in the ego can be conceptualised as a pathological regression to a developmental stage preceding ego-integrity and ego-constancy.
I think that this “incapacity to be oneself” could be related to what Winnicott (1958) described as the “capacity to be alone” in the presence of the mother. Precisely because, from the day she was conceived in her mother’s mind and womb, Renate always had to share her space with an uncomfortable guest/ghost, she could not develop that capacity to be alone, which is a precondition for the development of a sense of identity and of the capacity to be with others. In order to cope with this kind of situation, a child might elaborate to an abnormal degree some specific fantasies that are also common in children without major problems of identity; for instance, that a “double” exists somewhere that is one’s authentic self, and of which one is only a shadow or a dim mirror reflection.
