A dark trace : Sigmund Freud on the sense of guilt by Herman Westerink

By Herman Westerink

Sigmund Freud, in his look for the origins of the experience of guilt in person existence and tradition, usually speaks of "reading a dismal trace," therefore touching on the Oedipus delusion as a fable concerning the challenge of human guilt. In Freud's view, this feeling of guilt is a hint, a direction, that leads deep into the individual's psychological country, into youth stories, and into the prehistory of tradition and faith.

Herman Westerink follows this hint and analyzes Freud's notion at the experience of guilt as a imperative factor in his paintings, from the earliest stories at the ethical and "guilty" characters of the hysterics, through later complicated differentiations in the inspiration of the feel of guilt, and eventually to Freud's notion of civilization's discontents and Jewish feel of guilt. The experience of guilt is a key factor in Freudian psychoanalysis, not just with regards to different key strategies in psychoanalytic idea but additionally when it comes to Freud's debates with different psychoanalysts, together with Carl Jung and Melanie Klein
