Man and Sin by Piet Schoonenberg (1964) 1.4G4

[The difference between the character-building thinkdivine and the organization-justifying thinkgroup is significant.

The difference reminds me of the ego’s use of objects in order to bring other aspects of the psyche into relation.  Non-ego aspects of the psyche, harbored in conscience and in dispositions, may be trained through the integrative symbols of thinkdivine or they may be brought into command by the disciplinary objectives of thinkgroup.  Ironically, both these aspects appear to fall under the label of “superego”.

Either way, the non-ego aspects cannot escape the ego’s object relations because they cannot leave the psyche.  Virtually the same condition holds for the sovereign subject.]
