Freud and the Edipal Complex
by James W
(Dowagiac, Michigan, USA)
Just read the history section. Great bibliography. Have you ever read a book by Jeffrey Mason about his experience in the Freud archives? I can't recall the title. All of Freud’s 'hysterical' female patients had been abused as children, but the regal board of eminent psychologists dismissed his findings as children’s fantasy. That's when Freud invented the Edipus Complex and 'wish fulfillment fantasy.'
