A dark trace : Sigmund Freud on the sense of guilt by Herman Westerink

By Herman Westerink

Sigmund Freud, in his look for the origins of the experience of guilt in person existence and tradition, usually speaks of "reading a gloomy trace," hence touching on the Oedipus delusion as a delusion in regards to the challenge of human guilt. In Freud's view, this feeling of guilt is a hint, a course, that leads deep into the individual's psychological kingdom, into early life thoughts, and into the prehistory of tradition and faith.

Herman Westerink follows this hint and analyzes Freud's idea at the feel of guilt as a critical factor in his paintings, from the earliest stories at the ethical and "guilty" characters of the hysterics, through later advanced differentiations in the proposal of the experience of guilt, and at last to Freud's belief of civilization's discontents and Jewish experience of guilt. The experience of guilt is a key factor in Freudian psychoanalysis, not just on the subject of different key suggestions in psychoanalytic thought but in addition in terms of Freud's debates with different psychoanalysts, together with Carl Jung and Melanie Klein
