Sample text

Freud argued that in cases of hysteria the emotions that have been suppressed would, if acknowledged, give rise to terrible feelings of shame and guilt. It is not immediately clear how it is that one can suffer an emotional state while simultaneously keeping it out of awareness. In order to resolve this problem, Freud and Breuer drew on the French tradition of neuropathology, arguing that emotional conflict brings about a splitting of consciousness. The hysteric’s consciousness becomes divided, and that portion of consciousness harbouring the ”pathogenic idea”-the awareness of the suppressed emotional state-becomes dissociated from his or her “main” consciousness.

The concept of psychical determinism was based on the philosophy of scientific naturalism: the view that the mind is a part of nature and that mental phenomena are not essentially different from any other natural events. One of the central doctrines of nineteenth-century scientific naturalism was the doctrine of "determinism": the view that all events are cuused and that causal relations conform to the laws of nature. For Freud, as for other scientific psychologists, mental events are cemented to other events just as securely as physical events are.

This in turn had implications for psychological research. Introspection could no longer be relied THE BEGINNINGS OF PSYCHOANALYSIS 29 upon as an investigative procedure because introspection can only tell us about those aspects of mental life that happen to be conscious. Having disposed of these Cartesian assumptions, Freud was free to develop a model of the mind which was not absolutely based upon consciousness. His model, greatly simplified, is as follows. The mind/brain can be imagined as composed of three systems of neurones (nerve cells) which are represented by the Greek letters phi, psi, and omega.
