Evolution of Freudian Theory (Fall)
5:30-7:00 p.m.

This course will track the evolution of Freud's personality theory from one which emphasized the phenomenoon of split consciousness and the libidinal drive and its suppression as the main features of personality organization to a more holistic view of the personality. Through this evolution there emerged ideas about narcisssism (the self), internalized objects, aggression, the tripartite model of the mind and the role of the ego in defense, and especially in the management of anxiety. The purpose of the course is to illustrate the fact that Freud developed many of the building blocks of a mental theory of the whole person that can encompass all of what we now think of as the structural theory: ego psychology, object relations theory, self psychology, subjectivity and relational ideas. As time permits, aspects of the structural theory will also be critiqued.
