[Freud’s] is the honor of having discovered the first archetype, the Oedipus complex. That is a mythological and a psychological motif simultaneously (C.G. Jung Letters p. 525, 1949).

The Oedipus is essentially a tragic analysis.  Everything is already there, so it needs only to be extricated….  How favorable that is for the poet! But I fear the Oedipus is one of a kind without any secondary species (Schiller to Goethe, 1797).

Who was Oedipus and what’s the big deal with his complex? What do the terms ‘Oedipal’ and ‘pre-Oedipal’ mean, and how can they inform our psychological understanding? Beginning with a reading of Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex, this course will provide a detailed exploration of the mythology and psychology of Oedipus. From Jung and Freud to Lacan and Hillman, we will compare and contrast analytic theories while creating a composite portrait of modernity’s most central mythological and psychological figure.

Location: 15 East 11th Street, Apt. 1L.  Please note that this class has a limited enrollment.
