Publisher's Summary

It is generally thought that the psychopath has no superego. This is not so. The psychopath's superego functions only intermittently. By contrast, the non-psychopath's superego exerts a steady pressure on his psyche. The psychopath's superego, though existent, is, as it were, external to the ego over which it has jurisdiction, whereas the non-psychopath's superego is not so neatly separated from the corresponding ego. But the psychopath's superego is quite as existent as the non-psychopath's.
