Listen to Donald Meltzer (http://www.melanie-klein-trust.org.uk/meltzer) talk about one of Klein’s most famous and complex concepts: projective identification. Meltzer explored her idea through his own formulation of the ‘claustrum,’ a psychical state that he describes in this presentation given in 1990. It was part of the former annual public lectures at the Centre for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy: https://archive.org/details/TheClaustrumAProjectiveIdentificationViewOfTheWorld
