Oedipus Complex

  • What is Psychoanalysis? Part 3: The Oedipus Complex

    The emotional world of children
    His Majesty the Baby
    The mother as first love object
    Is it sexual?
    Jealousy, rivalry, hatred and anxiety
    The role of the father
    Gender: Freud didn't think you were just 'born a boy' or 'born a girl'
    There is no perfect resolution of the Oedipus complex
    It marks us for life
