Oedipus Redux

5 consecutive Thursdays, 7:00 – 8:30 pm
Beginning July 23
Instructor: William Baker, PsyD

7.5 CE contact hours for licensed NYS Social Workers, Psychoanalysts and Creative Arts Therapists.

[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.


Learning Objectives:

On completion of this class, you will be able to:

  1. Summarize the original myth of Oedipus.
  2. Describe a Jungian understanding of this primary mythologem and archetypal motif.
  3. Compare various psychoanalytic theories of Oedipal dynamics from Jung, Freud, Klein, Loewald and French psychoanalysis.
  4. Describe critiques of psychoanalytic notions of Oedipus from Hillman, Kohut, Benjamin and others.
