GPSA 161 Psychoanalytic Theory II: Fundamentals of Freud
STUDY ABROAD May 23 – 31, 2020 – Prague, Vienna, London
This course follows Freud’s conception of libido theory from its inception through later developments. It then examines Freud’s later papers on drive theory and the repetition compulsion; the division of the psyche into ego, id and superego; the sources of anxiety; the effects of innate destructiveness on the prospects for civilization; and Freud’s final summary of the state of analysis. Students also consider the continuing influence of these papers on contemporary thought, examining current uses of Freud’s drive theories.
