Example text

This factor should not be understood as a mere defect or shortcoming either. In mild cases there is a tendency for musing and daydreaming. If, during a train trip, you stare out the window and allow your thoughts to wander, you find yourself in a hypnoid state at that moment. When the trip is over the daydream ceases, and in most cases only great effort allows a reconstruction of the contents of our musings. Even in this mild form of autohypnosis there is already a true psychical split: when we are ‘awake’, the thoughts of the day-dream have become more or less inaccessible (Freud & Breuer 1895a, 233-235).

In every sexual relationship one thus needs to distinguish between all possible homo- and heterosexual relationships between two men and two women. An understanding of sexual desire in terms of bisexuality seems thoroughly marked by clinical findings on hysteria, by the hysterical switching and the slipping of sexual orientations and gender identities, and more profoundly by the experience of an original multiplicity of desire. Freud considers the problem of bisexuality a universally human question, expressed in hysteria in a magnified and pregnant way.

That which Oedipus initially experiences as a series of coincidental, unfortunate incidents and accidents, is in fact the realisation of his destiny as predetermined by the oracle. Freud’s transition from a trauma theory to a theory of dispositions produces a similar inversion. 26 The analogy with the Oedipal myth goes no further than this. The disposition towards hysteria, that Freud develops in his letters to Fliess and in the first edition of Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality (Freud 1905b), does not in the least exist in an Oedipal problem.
