Freud for Beginners - Irene
There is always more than one way to present or to understand concepts. The visual presentation of typically wordy Freudian ideas and theories is the perfect bridge between Freud and artists, such as us. The concepts are not foreign, as they were taught in high school, but including his entire story, work's process, outside influences and specific cases brought another element of interest and depth to Freud. And although you begin to understand the justification of his theories, I'm still not convinced on topics, such as how everything can be traced back to sexuality. I'm sure that your unconsciousness is affected by countless factors. Also, biologically, no one is ever perfect, so I think it is to be assumed that any thought processes, conscious or not, can be easily convoluted without yourself knowing. Therefore, how can you claim to truly know the source of the unconscious?
