This is Freud’s groundbreaking study of a wealthy young Russian man, subject to psychotic episodes and neuroses.

In this evaluation of his patient’s inability to have proper bowel movements, as well as his sullen attitude, Freud incorporates all elements that he is renowned for: Doing so, Freud discerns key stages in his patient’s life, which would define his future wont, idiosyncrasies and physical defects.
At the age of 18 months, Sergei alleges to have experienced a primal scene; whereby his parents engaged in sodomy.
Following this imperative event, Sergei conjectured that his mother was sick at the hands of his father, which she lamented multifarious times. This would be the genesis of his intestinal issues. Following this event, at the age of about 3 and a half, his sister unexpectedly seduces him, fondling with his penis, informing him his maid had previously done so with the gardener. This culminates in his sexual awakening, whereupon he approaches his maid, whom threatens him with castration.
This would be Sergei’s point of nadir. In spite of the warning being declared by the maid, Sergei was frightened to be castrated at the hands of his father, which resulted in the notorious dream of 7 wolves in a walnut tree. In this hellish dream, one wolf is tailless; which alludes to the primal scene he witnessed, where his father’s genitals disappeared whilst having coitus with his mother. Freud concludes that the eery calmness of the wolves replaces the cathartic violence of his parents’ sexual intercourse.
Eventually, becoming a theist, Sergei replaces God with the previous relationship he had with his father, and considers himself to be Jesus, yearning to be sexually satisfied at the hands of his father. Yet, this torrent of information, deriving from such a short book is just the tip of the iceberg from such a tormenting book. This flummoxing, yet painfully realistic case, paints a portrait of a sadomasochistic and submissive man, still suffering at the hands of an infantile neurosis.

Very interesting, but if you pick it up be prepared for something on the more dense side. His emphasis on sexuality at a tender age, penis envy, mother complex and even obsession appear, if not altogether false, at least exaggerated. Dora is a young patient, with suicidal intentions, if only proclaimed, they still betray some issues and treated by Sigmund Freud.
Dora is jealous, because her father has an affair with Frau K. The consequent scenario is presented: The man has suffered from gonorrhea, whereas the father in the previous case had syphilis, which he has transmitted to his wife The Wolf Man expresses at various stages feelings and desires that are associated with sadistic and masochistic tendencies.
There are incestuous desires for his sisters But the recurrent theme is that of a grey, at other times white wolf that appears in dreams and is present in tales.
The Wolfman by Sigmund Freud
There is one told by his grandfather, with a tailor that cuts the tail of a grey wolf, who runs into the wild. Walking into the woods, the tailor is faced by a pack of wolves and he is forced to seek refuge in a tree. The wolf without a tale is a member of the pack and he wants revenge. He speaks with freuv mates and explains that if they get on top of each other, the last one will reach thhe level of the man.
Curiously, Freud explains this wolf as representing castration and the Wolf Man is aware that to get affection from his father, he would have to face castration, for he saw his parents copulating, when he was a child. I do not see how that works, but as afore mentioned, I refute Freud and most of his theories and explanations. Il padre, adepto di Freud, in uno dei numerosi dialoghi che ha col figlio, a un certo punto lo sottopone a un interrogatorio pp.
Ecco alcune delle domande del padre al figlio: Anche questo ti piace, no? Mamma, Hanna o me? E con che lo faresti?
Il padre ci assicura che non si trattava di una paura leggera quella che sarebbe potuta passare “se solo gli fosse stata data una bella sculacciata”, p.
Il bimbo cerca di adattarsi, di venire incontro ai grandi, a volte tradendo persino consapevolezza di come, almeno per lui, sia tutto un gran dreud della parti. A volte poi, invece, giustamente, si stufa, e di fronte ai fuochi di fila di dialoghi “terapeutici” che il padre gli ammanisce su suggerimento di Freud, alla fine il ffreud sbotta: The dream interpretation is hilarious – if it doesn’t fit Freud’s theories, the dream shows the opposite of what it seems to be saying until it does.

On his return to Vienna the following year, Freud set up in private practice, specialising in nervous and brain disorders. The same year he married Martha Bernays, with whom he had six children.
Freud developed the theory that humans have an unconscious in which sexual and aggressive impulses are in perpetual conflict for supremacy with the defences against them. Inhe began an intensive analysis of himself. Inhis major work ‘The Interpretation of Dreams’ was published in which Freud analysed dreams in terms of unconscious desires and experiences.
InFreud was appointed Professor of Neuropathology at the University of Vienna, a post he held until Although the medical establishment disagreed with many of his theories, a group of pupils and followers began to gather around Freud.
