Dr sigmund freud

[War] strips us of the later accretions of civilization, and lays bare the primal man ine ach of us. It compels us once more to be heroes who cannot believe in their own death; it stamps strangers as enemies, whose death is to be brought about or desired; it tells us to disregard the death of those we love. “Thoughts for the Times on War and Death,” 1915

A simplified outline of freud s ideas

A Simplified Outline of Freud’s Ideas

  • Like the work of many other important thinkers, Freud’s work is complex and not fully consistent. His thinking evolved over the course of 50 years, and he often changed or rejected parts of his earlier thinking. Moreover, many later parts of his work, when he was old and mortally ill, were expressed quite schematically. What follows is therefore a summary of major points, which, inevitably, skips over some of the finer points.

  • Broadly speaking, Freud’s work traces the relationship among a number of different systems or structures of the human psyche. The elements include:

The elements of the psyche

The elements of the psyche:

  • The Id

  • The Ego

  • The Superego

The areas of the mind

The areas of the mind:

  • The Unconscious

  • The Preconscious

  • The Conscious

The fundamental instinctive drives

The fundamental instinctive drives

  • Eros

  • Thanatos

An adaptive model of the individual s relationship with the world comprising

An adaptive model of the individual’s relationship with the world, comprising

  • The Pleasure Principle

  • The Reality Principle

A model of the individual s developmental cycle comprising the following phases

A model of the individual’s developmental cycle, comprising the following phases:

  • Oral

  • Anal

  • Phallic

  • Latent

  • Genital

These systems

These Systems

  • Are related

  • Are ontogenetic (part of a developmental sequence of the organism

  • Undergo constant change in the normal life of an individual

  • All Freud’s assumptions posit a developmental history of the individual based on:

    • The interaction of the contingent history of the individual with the

    • Structured history of the various developmental forces and sequences

  • The individual is, at the least dialectically formed

The id

The Id

  • At birth the individual is psychically not fully formed

  • A totally unconscious mass of instinctive desires

  • The individual is unaware that she or he is one

  • The child assumes that it is the world, complete and self-sufficient.

  • The child has no real awareness of self

  • The child is a bundle of drives seeking to fulfill the pleasure principle

  • All its actions are pure manifestations of the two major drives EROS and THANATOS, though at this stage EROS seems completely dominant

  • The child is thus totally driven to seek pleasure; it is a collection of wants in search of immediate satisfaction

  • The primary satisfaction it seeks is through its oral area, by putting things in its mouth
