Bushra Hasan Mingrone, pd3 Turn of the Screw: Psychoanalysis pages 254-65 the powers motivating men and women are mainly and normally unconscious conscious mind censors the unconscious mind o unconscious part of mind is called “id” or “it” o predominantly rational, logical, orderly is called “ego” or “I” o projection of ego is “superego” whatever the ego and superego tell us NOT to do or think is repressed into the unconscious mind this censored material emerges in dreams, in language (Freudian slips), in creative activities that may produce art (like literature), and in neurotic behavior Apparently, males have a fear that their father will castrate them, and they also have a strange impulse to be breast-fed by the mother. Sigmund Freud, everyone. o this complex is called oedipal, because of a tragic Greek guy who did something similar and equally weird from the beginning of recorded history such wishes have been restrained by the most powerful religious and social taboos, and as a result have come to be regarded as “unnatural,” even though Freud thinks this is all perfectly normal. Okay, Freud In dreams, particularly, Freud found ample evidence that these wishes persisted, so, he conceived that natural urges, when identified as “wrong,” may be repressed but not obliterated In the unconscious, these urges take on symbolic garb, regarded as nonsense by the waking mind that does not recognize their significance o Freud may actually be right about this.

Stop thinking about this,” then you actually end up dreaming about whatever it is.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
