What do you think of Freudian psychology?
Do you believe that the Oedipus complex is the way to figure someone out? Do you think it’s all garbage?
Personally, I think it’s all whooey. Not all families have one mother and one father, so that automatically cancels things out. You have to think of the context that Freud was in: 19th century Austria, which was a Victorian and very western in terms of ideologies. I think that the Oedipus complex was meant for people of Austria, living in the 19th century, but Freud was too close minded to see that his rule wasn’t universal.
