Sample text

Primitive man must have been conscious to some extent of the true motives of his fears of his son. In order to ease his guilty feelings about his infanticide he rationalized its real motives. He explained the necessity of making a serious sacrifice by plausible reasons but did not admit that it suited his own purpose very well to chose his son as the victim of the sacrifice. 1 Frazer, J. , 1930. 20 Infanticide The form and moral level of rationalization of infanticide differed greatly amongst the nations.

He certainly did not think of it consciously but there is a strange account from which one can infer that he unconsciously not only considered this but even recognized his son. 1 Oedipus, after he was rudely ordered to go out of the way, at first quietly continued to go on without any act of violence. But then something extraordinary happened: the horses of Laius trod on Oedipus's feet so that they bled. 2 He thus ordered for the second time an injury to the feet of 'Swollen-footed'. Oedipus still wore the scars which were caused by the iron spike which pierced his feet.

The introjected parental images include the moral attitudes of the parents. They now become part of the child's own ego. His ego will thus be transformed. The transformed new part of the ego is the super-ego. The introjected images of the parents contain the parents' own super-egos which, in turn, have been formed by the super-egos of their forefathers. In this way the super-egos of the human race are introjected into a child. This view comes near to Jung's postulation of a racial or collective unconscious and of archetypes.
