Guilt , Anxiety and Phobias
You may think Freud is interested in one form of self deception. When you repress something, it
is a way of hiding from the self and deceiving the self. Suppose that I am interested in a woman
and she is not interested in me. I still, somehow, deceive myself. I think somehow that she has hit
on me. I am repressing all my actions about the actual behaviour. 19yr old woman who was
obsessed with her sleeping arrangement. With Freud, she has repressed her Oedipus complex.
Well, we can say that she is deceiving herself and that her neurotic behaviour is just one way of
expressing her Oedipus complex. She has repressed the Oedipus complex into the unconscious.
Freud and repression and self-deception. Last week, Julie told us that one theoretic problem
about self-deception is to explain how its possible. SD seeks to imply that there is a deceiver in
you and that they are both the same person. The deceiver is the person who knows P and the
other Q. How is it I can know both one thing and the other? With Freud, it is easy to explain.
Page 98 diagram. Repressing as pushing something from one to the other. There are two parts.
There are the lines. Self-deception becomes very easy to talk about. it is simply pushing
something from conscious into the unconscious. Belief that P is here and not P is there
(conscious and unconscious). Professor Gombay isnt defending Feud, hes explaining. There are
different parts in us.
Today Professor Gombay is going to talk about anxiety and guilt. Next week, he will talk about
femininity. He will give us the exam questions as well. Freud is very interested in anxiety and the
later he went the more interested he became in guilt. In the Old Intro Lectures guilt was
mentioned just once. Page 411. The Oedipus complex is the source of the sense of guilt (Old Intro
Lectures). Page 97 in the New Intro Lectures. Guilt is equated with moral anxiety.
Anxiety
RealisticNeuroticMoral
Phobia
Realistic anxiety is a feeling. For example, the people who are living in Japan right now are
feeling anxious. It is a generalized feeling, not necessarily specific. Its a kind of generalized fear.
Neurotic anxiety. At the beginning when we were discussing different kinds of neurosis there was
what Freud called anxiety hysteria. It is drawn from neurotic which is called phobia. Page 106.
Neurotic has to do with the relationship between the ego and the id.
Moral anxiety has to do with the relationship with the ego and the super ego.
