Title: Dissociation : Vol. 3, No. 3, p. 165-166 : A brief note on "Jekyll and Hyde" and MPD
Author: Garcia, Emanuel E., 1954-
Abstract: Robert Louis Stevenson's macabre and riveting tale, "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, " perceptively displays critical psychological mechanisms at work in the development and maintenance of MPD, namely, 1) the naturally fragmented and chaotic state of the mind, 2) the yearning for unity, 3) the wish to disavow responsibility for certain impulses, 4) the delight taken in the gratification of forbidden desires by an alter, and 5) the inevitable failure of dissociative attempts to dispel psychic conflict. These observations find corroboration in clinical material presented.
