The Repression and Abandonment of Oedipus: oedipal situations in life, distress and disorder
Nov 30, 2018 – Dec 02, 2018
Location: University College London
The most nuclear of psychoanalytic ideas is the eponymously named Oedipus complex. Stated generally, it is that shifting patterns of triangular love, hate and rivalry exist universally: two are imagined to join as a cross-generational sexual pair transgressing the incest taboo. The third fears abandonment and feels murderous. These patterns determine whom we love and/or hate and how we see the differences, or absence of them, between the sexes. They operate in the genesis of guilt and mental disorders. They structure family and group dynamics. They interact with culture. This Conference aims at a current view of how we understand, and work with clinically, the phenomena to which this radical thesis draws our attention.
