Abstract

"Emotional isolation is a defense mechanism that is used to protect one from emotional distress by stop communicating with people. It originates from traumatic experiences in a person’s past that are hidden from consciousness and may cause problems during adulthood in the form of obsessive or compulsive behaviors. These behaviors were portrayed in Philip Carey who was the main character in William Somerset Maugham’s novel Of Human Bondage. Hence, this research aim was to analyze the timeless view of Philip Carey’s emotional isolation in his life. The research was qualitative and, therefore, descriptive too. The technique of collecting data was document analysis. The technique of collecting data was ethnographic (Spradley in Garido, 2017). Then, these written data will be analyzed with the psychological approach and sociological approach. This research used psychoanalysis theory: personal principles and defense mechanism by Sigmund Freud. These contain about the conscious and unconscious side of humans and the application in their behavioral life. In this research, the emotional isolation behaviors portrayed in Philip Carey were a self-conscious person, an introvert, an impulsive, and an attention seeker. Philip Carey’s abnormal behaviors occurred for some reasons. First, he did not have parents taking care of him. Second, he had to live with his cruel and abusive uncle. He also became an object of bullying because of his clubfoot. These behaviors influenced Philip Carey’s life. At first, he became self-conscious and delusional. Next, he failed to control his most burdensome bondage: passion. However, in the end, he finally sought freedom from every bondage."
