January 19, 2024 — Drive and Repression

[37 pages]

In this class, we’ll examine Freud’s concept of drives and their function in his mental apparatus. Drive and repression are the core concepts of the dynamics of psychic processes, and both concepts find their specific elaboration in the two papers assigned below.

Learning objective: Participants will be able to describe what Freud meant by the aim of a drive (satisfaction), the object of a drive (the self or the other), to give an example of the transformation of a drive (sublimation, turning the drive into its opposite, repression, turning around on the self).

Freud, S. (1915). Instincts and their vicissitudes. The standard edition of the complete psychological works of SigmundFreud, volume XIV (1914-1916): On the history of the psycho- analytic movement, papers on metapsychology and other works (pp. 117-140)
