THE INTERPRETATION OF STORIES: FROM FREUD TO TODAY
Freudian Interpretation
-the meanings of our lives and the stories about our lives lie hidden in the unconscious
-Oedipus complex; a child feeling unconscious sexual feelings toward one parent and

The Story of Oedipus
-boys experience intense longings for their mother, therefore hating their fathers, then
