Effects of Freudian Psychoanlysis

 There are certain theories that suddenly came up on the horizon and conquered the human minds without having given a second thought. Psychoanalysis is one such theory, developed in an infinitesimal amount of time. Compared with other scientific developments that took long time to get one idea after the other, the development of all such complicated structures and ideas like ids and egos, the tensions and the forces, the pushes and the pulls, seems to be too much for one brain or a few brains to have cooked up in such a short time, and such a hurried development is bound to have lapses. People like Freud, Adler, Darwin, etc. gave serious setback to the human thoughts and emotions through their theories and have had far reaching effects on human mind.

Freud and Adler, the two champions of Psychoanalysis, may somewhat seem to have differed on the ideological front, but the end result of their thought is one and the same. Freud was the creator of “conscious” and “unconscious” who and believed in a constant struggle between them. He propounded the theory that man’s unconscious whips instincts for evil and sexual licentiousness. He suggested that those who fail to fulfill the urges of the unconscious get inflicted with hysteria or nervous disorders and prescribed succumbing to the urges of the unconscious. As termed by Joad:

Where Freud has revealed the beast in man, Adler claims to have exposed devil.

Similarly, the modern psychologists have termed the man as nothing but a “carnal beast”free from ethical bounds. There is very minor difference between behaviourism and psychoanalysis. Behaviourism treats man as a mere machine without the freedom of choice in matters of action, while the latter recognizes the freedom of choice but consider it to be a slave of instincts. Much of the sexual anarchy in the western society stems from these materialistic concepts. It has progressed to the extent of even incest being seen as acceptable. All this is the result of the contributions by people like  Karl Marx, Freud, and Darwin. This permissiveness is permeating deep into the human society all over the world alongside the dazzling economic success of the west.

Thus, while the modern scientific discoveries point to the presence of a conscious brain behind the entire universe, the modern psychology has exerted contrary pulls over the human society. In the final analysis, it could be said that while materialism has begun to fade, the strangling hold of materialistic ideologies continues. Therefore, several of the interpretations from the point of view of mechanism, motion, and concept of matter and energy, have gone obsolete. That is why the contemporary materialist psychology has been rendered out of date. It is merely because it could not keep pace with modern discoveries.

  1. IT IS THE PRIDE OF THE SICKENED MIND WHICH FAILS TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE CREATOR AND THE SOUL GIVEN BY GOD. THE RESULT? THIS SCHIZOPHRENIC INDIVIDUALS INFECT THE WORLD WITH THEIR SHALLOW IDEOLOGIES AND SLOWLY DESTROYING THE HUMANITY, KILLING OUR INNER CONSCIENCE. FINALLY WE ARE THE SEMI-ROBOTIC CREATURES DEVOID OF REAL EMOTION OR CONVICTION.

  2. You forgot to mention the superego ideal that Freud has in contrast with the id and ego. The superego is the moralistic, taught part of the personality. The id drives basic needs such as food, sleep, elimination, and sex. The ego’s responsibilities are to balance the basic needs of the individual and to get these needs in ways that do not go against societal rules. The superego, if you will, could be the part that religion teaches in a person.

  3. I think a man is not basically a beast only,there must be something positive too in his basic psychology
    Allah has sent him as His khalifa.

  4. I don’t think modern society accepts incest. Also, modern psychology has not exerted pulls to the contrary. At least not to the extent that you imply.

    • Consensual incest between brother and sister is frowned on, but not prohibited in France. It has been legal there since the time of Napoleon, but still you can’t marry your sister. It is similar in Japan, legal between consenting adults but not legal for incestuous marriages. Sweden is the only country in Europe which allows marriage between siblings who share one parent. They have recently been silently dropping anti-incest laws in other countries too. It is still technically illegal in lots of countries, but police in most countries will now turn a blind eye to it unless someone makes a complaint. Most police will leave happy couples alone these days.
