Author: Gabriella Papadia

(We are happy to welcome back Gabriella Papadia! Until next Wednesday, she will be available in the forum to answer your questions!)

From the dissolution of the oedipal complex to the development of several attachment styles.

"With the failure of the Oedipal complex the investment on the maternal object must be abandoned" (S. Freud, The Ego and Es)

There is an anecdote in the life of Sigmund Freud that tells the origin of the Oedipus complex; it is said, in fact, that when he was little, his father Jacob told him that at the age of ten, a stranger turned to him exclaiming “Down from the sidewalk, Jew!”. Then, Sigmund asked his father Jacob how he reacted he replied, “...

Lo sviluppo della libido
Dalla dissoluzione del complesso edipico allo sviluppo di diversi stili di attaccamento.

"Con lo sfacelo del complesso edipico deve essere abbandonato l’investimento oggettuale materno" (S. Freud, L’Io e l’Es)

Esiste un aneddoto nella vita del Maestro che racconta l’origine del complesso edipico; si narra, infatti, che quando era piccolo il padre Jacob gli raccontò che all’età di dieci anni un uomo si rivolse a lui esclamando “Giù dal marciapiede ebreo!”, allora Sigmund chiese al padre come avesse reagito e Jacob rispose “...

The psychoanalysis of the Viennese Sigmund Freud and its significant value for modern man

Author: Helmut Luft

Sigmund Freud lived in Vienna from 1860 to 1938 where he gained insights that would change the world. The zoologist and neurophysiologist Freud spent more than a decade researching the anatomy of the nervous system- first of lower, then higher animals, and finally the human brain. His research was groundbreaking. He found that the “higher” species develop from the lower forms they presuppose and regress to them again. Proof of this continuity confirmed Darwin´s theory that man is descended from animals (evolution) and was not created as a finished man (creativity theory).

Essay on Separation

As an adolescent, I thought I would become a man for a while, an adult, once I lost my virginity. Then, I thought the key factor of being an adult would lie in the ability to support myself financially without depending on my parents.

In his book, „Totem and Taboo” (1913), Freud deemed any attempt to etymologically explain the term as difficult. The word taboo is Polynesian in origin but lacks the idea which it connotes.
