PS101 Week 7 Lecture (Ch.12)
Tuesday, October 26th, 2010
Freud
in an individual there is a balance between death and life
Phamatos (death) / Enos (life)
Ncrofalious (in love with death) / Biophulous (love life)
Freud concentrated on these two extremes
Ncrofalious
o stops growth, prefer things that don’t grow, like things that
are mechanical
o loves certainty and control
Biophulous
o see life as functional
o want to mold and influence by love, reason, example
Psychosexual Development (Freud’s model)
1) Oral
birth to one year, gratification comes through oral tasks
2) Anal
1 to 3 years old
conflict: toilet training (too severe training - people become anal
characters)
3) Phallic Phase
genitals
young boys love their mother, young girls love their father
(boy motherfather vs. girlmotherfathermother)
4) Genital Phase
fully developed
Problem: Too much or too little can cause fixation at any of these levels
Criticisms of Freud's Model
1) Hypothesis are not testable
2) Violates the law of Parsimony (things should be explained
briefly)
3) Theory can be disconfirmed
4) Case was very limited
