Towards Grasping Projection(s)

…Obviously, the negative inner image can also be suppressed and projected outward. That is, one can project one’s own moral problem–as usual–onto another person. As soon as this does not happen and one confronts one’s own problem, the projection is withdrawn and the actual image of the Other becomes visible.

– Neumann (Jacob and Esau, p.18)
