„Man bittet, ein Auge zuzudrücken“ – Von Freuds Verführungstheorie zur Theorie des Ödipuskomplexes und zurück

Translated title of the contribution: "One begs to turn a blind eye" - From Freud's seduction theory to the theory of the Oedipus complex and back

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperChapter

Abstract

The authors examine the reasons why Freud may have been inclined to abandon his seduction theory and to anchor the Oedipus complex in mankind’s phylogenetic development. They conclude that factual arguments do not justify Freud’s attributing the oedipal conflict to phylogenetic factors and that this solution appears to be a substitutive idea for the ontogenetic origin of the Oedipus complex, wrapped up – for whatever reasons he may have had – and disguised in a phylogenetic package. In reality however, the child’s oedipal conflict is the outcome of the unresolved oedipal complexes of the parental figures.
