They further state that “there are discrepancies between Freud’s notes on the therapy sessions and the published case histories supposedly based on those notes. Researchers have found differences involving the length of the analysis and the sequence of events disclosed during analysis as well as unsubstantiated claims of cures” (Schultz and Schultz, 2004, p.430). Not only opponents of Freud criticize his work, even Freudians believe “that he often contradicted himself and that his definitions of key concepts are unclear” (Schultz and Schultz, 2004, p.431). Freud even justified his writings earlier and tried to answer their questions and explain what might have
Totemism, which is a much rarer phenomenon than incest taboo, might then well be the joint product of the incest drive and repression process and of some other less compelling factor. Nonsexual ta-boo, on the other hand, which rears itself in so many protean forms over the whole field of culture, might be due to a set of still different but analogous psychic factors. Anthropologists and sociologists have certainly long been groping for something underlying which would help them explain both the repetitions and the variations in culture, provided the explanation were evidential, extensible by further analysis, and neither too simplistic nor too one-sided. Put in some such form as this, Freud's hypothesis might long before this have proved fertile
Carl Jung’s Theory of Personality Anyone who has ever been interested in psychology has at least heard of Sigmund Freud for his hand in helping the advancement and understanding of the human psyche by making the Freudian Theory. In his theory, Freud stated that a person’s personality is formed by conflicts among the three main structures of the human mind: the Id, Ego, and Superego. Fortunately, many essays, reports, books, and websites have commented about the Freudian Theory, but this writing is putting the spotlight on a past friend-turned-enemy of Freud and an under-appreciated piece of history in psychology called the Jungian Theory, named after Carl Jung. Born on July 26, 1875, Carl Jung was a Swiss psychiatrist who is mostly known for the concept of how people can be categorized into introverts and extroverts by the extent of certain functions of consciousness. (Biography) Like Freud, Jung believed that the human psyche is made of three components.
Many theories in Alfred Hitchcock’s movies stem from theories on human behaviors from Freud’s psychoanalytic theories. Psychoanalytical idea are extremely apparent in the film Shadow of a Doubt due to that psychoanalysis is therapeutic, and the way the mind acts by how behavior is affected. Such as comparing the Electra complex, which is similar to the Oedipus complex but relating to females in a familial situation due to the relationship between Charlie and Charles that would show their strange and unethical admiration to be accurate which is very opposed in socially and ethically in society. Such as their relationships is considered to be inappropriate during the film due to their physical contact with each other, which was extremely uncomfortable to watch between an uncle and niece. Another aspect is in James McLaughlin’s essay in A Hitchcock Reader where is compares their similarities “[Charlie’s] uncle ‘heard’ her, that there is a kind of telepathy between them.
Similar to the Sandman, in our developing consciences, a symbol can take over the full function and the significance of what it symbolizes, manifesting as a fear, a morbid anxiety, or a repression in our minds. Conclusively, Freud ends his essay on the over-accentuation of psychical reality in comparison with physical reality, being closely allied to the belief in the omnipotence of thoughts and the power of manifestation of mental perception and identity. Freud leaves readers with a question of the uncanny and whether or not we have a familiar secret that has yet to be revealed to our developing
I say this because some people are born to be the way they are but at the same time this could be changed by many aspects of a person’s life. Sigmund Freud- Psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud was in the center of the debate he was getting more knowledge about nurture but he was also giving some credibility to nature. Although Freud was at the center of the debate through nurturing he showed us how this theory truly does work with a person and how it makes us who we are. This was after years of research and study in psychoanalysis. Throughout the theory Freud mentions how there are parts of us psyche come together and make up our perception and our unconscious.
Since the 20th century some historians have likewise become serious about psychological repression—i.e., in attitudes and actions that need psychological insight and in some cases diagnosis to recover and understand. Somebody in charge of, the claim of historians to deal with the feelings together with the thoughts of individuals in almost any portion of the human past has been manufactured good. None with this will be to state that history writing
Even so, lie has always been present; there are still lots of unexplored factors of it. Not just modern psychologists’ works are devoted to studies of lie and its nature, but moreover many philosophers’ writings are based on contemplation and analysis of that. However, these kinds of studies are very objective, in everyday life we associate lie with a bad property, which is on the contrary a subjective point. However, when we have a choice, for example whether to lie or remain silent about a particular situation, second one sounds not so bad, isn’t it? That is the point Cal Lightman’s work starts.
In the modern world, when Freud and Jung came with new theories about the human mind and subconscious, explaining dreams and the human conscience, even literature itself began to be preoccupied with what are the human reactions to certain images, a reason why the horror literature is so visual and full of descriptions about images and sounds rather than feelings. Through H.P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, Robert E. Howard and many authors that wrote horror literature, we can observe that their stories describe situations that may be associated with the primitive state, situations that bring us back on the time when religion and belief were founded based on the idea of death. It is because although we live in a modern world and we may call ourselves far more civilised than our ancestors, we still see death as a mystery which leads to many unanswered questions. Of course, there are many theories, scientifical or religious, but what is actually the question of the humankind is not where we are going after death, for we do not know what death is, but rather how does death feel.
(Dewey, 2007) In contrast, there are evidence that proves Freudian slips is unavoidable and peoples will correct it if they say it or wrote it wrongly. It is clear that slips and mistake are two different things as if ones who make a mistake and instantly he/she will correct it, that will be the slips of tongue or pen but if ones kept on making the same mistakes over and over again and he/she does not know how to correct it, obviously that is a mistake made by the person. However, since Sigmund Freud’s theory been introduced there were many philosopher and researcher who disagree with his idea. Why? Modern views on Freudian
They were purely the ideas of the Nazi’s. Before Adolf Hitler came to power and implemented the T-4 program, which came from Tiergartenstrasse 4, Berlin the ideological ground had been already prepared. 1920, the growing popularity of eugenics, as Detlev Peukert has argued “between reformist optimism and potentially murderous schemas of eugenic classification and special treatment (sonderbehandlung). (The politics of German Child Welfare from the Empire to the Federal Republic, 1996, Dickinson Ross, p.143) two eminent German academics, Karl Binding a law professor and Alfred Hoche a doctor published their work “Permission to destroy life unworthy of life” they portrayed that it is acceptable for an outside agency to determine what individual life was worthless and an individual had to justify his existence according to criteria imposed from outside. The cultural factors In Germany during the time had a direct influence in the medical establishment and the social sciences.
It was the shock that the experiment gave that brought their life choices into question. In conclusion, I believe the way Slater presents her evidence is very convincing. She makes it a point to explain all of the controversial points that surround Stanley Milgram and his experiments. While we might not agree on all of her points, we both share the thought that Milgram and his experiments have affected positively despite the issues of its purpose, results, usefulness, and morality shroud the experiments in
Janessa Holman Psych.451- Intro. To Psychotherapy 03/31/2016 Paper #3: Research Review Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, while being responsible for influencing all other forms of subsequent therapy, has a prevalent discounting in modern psychological circles, as well as present-day media (Wolitzsky, 33-34). Due in part to a growing emphasis on Cognitive Behavior Therapy and its supposed superior effectiveness, as well as a reluctance on the part of its forefathers to submit their patients to research methodology, believing it improbable for a study to measure treatment benefits, such as insight, freedom from inner constraints, etc., Psychodynamic Therapy has been brushed aside as an ineffective therapy, due to a supposed lack of empirical research support (Shedler, 1). Dr. Jonathan Shedler argues that this presumption is entirely false, for though “evidence based” is typically utilized to refer to “a group of therapies conducted according to instruction manuals (‘manualized’ therapies) (Shedler, 1), this does not negate the
He believes that although the use of deception was common among the psychologists in a century ago, the obedience study of a social psychologist, Stanly Milgram raised questions about the morality of deception use. Before the Milgram research, psychologists like Edgar Vinacke employed deception in many of their studies. Some Vinacke’s studies were such that not only deceived the participants, but also exposed them to embarrassing and painful experiences. Although these studies raised some arguments, because “the use of deception was not particularly widespread” (Kimmel, 2011, p.580), they did not have any outcome. Moreover, the time of these researches were accompanied by the time that the scientific psychology was flourishing.
Today’s Most Influential Psychologists Kay Jamison is an influential psychologist, Jamison focuses on psychological diseases like mood disorders, suicide, bi-polar and depression. She has conducted extensive research into both “normal” and “abnormal” moods, frequently arguing that the two are not easily separable. Jamison has also stressed the importance of employing psychotherapy in combination with medication to treat mood disorders. Jamison focuses on client centered therapy, she as well as Carl Rogers think that people are free to make choices and control their destinies, despite the burdens of the past (Ratus, 2012, 2014) She follows the cognitive perspectives on motivation theory. Kay Jamison is someone to admire, she herself suffers
