Each baby arrives in this world bringing with it a nascent appreciation of the politics of group life. Lipgar Experiences in Groups: notes in retrospect A lthough Wilfred Bion's collection of papers, Experiences in Groups (1961) is considered by many--and perhaps by Bion himself-to contain only sketches for a theory about group relations, it is a seminal work and of enduring importance. We were first introduced to these papers at the University of Chicago in the early 1950sby Herbert A. Thelen (1954,1984).
When challenged in this way, members of the group admitted that they did feel considerable anxiety, particularly about the existence of a number of differences within the group that the pidures had revealed; but-it was added almost immediately-what point was there 18 BION'S LEGACY TO G R O U P S in exploring this, for the differences that had seemed a few minutes earlier not to exist were now seen as huge and unresolvable. My reply seemed a bit limp: I stated that all one could do about such differences was talk about them.
Although, as he emphasized, the work group attracts a strong psychological investment, it expresses only one dimension of mental functioning. At the second, unconscious, level the group is held together by a shared assumption about the group and the members' contributions to it. Bion identified three such basic assumptions: jightBight, dependency, and pairing. In fight/flight the group behaves as if its purpose is to identify an external enemy or threat, which it has either to attack or to flee from.
