New Ideas about the Oedipus Complex

It has always seemed odd to me that the Oedipus myth and complex should lie at the heart of our humanity. It strikes me as so eccentric, so weird, in the same way that being turned on by dangling bits of fat with nipples on them or an enlarged vein with a sac beneath it seems undignified and comical. But there it is: evolution, culture and fashion have left us this way, with sexuality and the Oedipal triangle intermingled and as lifelong unconscious preoccupations which ramify throughout both personal and large-scale history. For example, as the artist Otto Dix once said, all wars are fought over the pudenda. We’ll just have to make the best of it and play the hand we’ve been dealt.

The Oedipus Complex

Inspired by the Greek legend, Oedipus Rex, by Sophocles, Freud's discovery of the Oedipus Complex was made during his self-analysis. The Oedipus Complex (3-5 years of age) is a characteristic constellation of loving and hostile wishes that children experience towards their parents at the height of the phallic phase.

The Oedipus-Complex as An Explanation of Hamlet's Mystery - Complete text of Ernest Jones' influential essay in The American Journal of Psychology.
-- http://www.clicknotes.com/jones   Arts: Literature: World Literature: British: Shakespeare: Works: Plays: Tragedies: Hamlet

Oedipus and his Human Destiny

 The author presents an analysis of the Greek myth of Oedipus, after Sophocles Oedipus Rex. This analysis considers that, in addition to an oracular destiny determinated by deity, Oedipus realizes his own human destiny, which is the very conquest of the knowledge of his own identity. The author relates such a conquest to the psychoanalytic work, which enables each individual to get in touch with his deepest motivations and to develop a better self-consciousness.
