Die Traumdeutung

Page: 517

View: 5202

Dieses eBook: "Die Traumdeutung" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Die Traumdeutung führt die grundlegenden Elemente von Freuds Psychoanalyse zum ersten Mal zusammen: das Unbewusste, die Verdrängung, die frühkindliche Sexualität und die Arbeit an der Bewusstmachung verborgener Konflikte als therapeutischer Methode. Träume haben nach Freud einen Sinn, der sich hermeneutisch erschließen lässt. Im Traum streben inakzeptable, von der Zensur des psychischen Apparats verdrängte Wünsche, die häufig einen sexuellen Hintergrund haben und mit Kindheitserlebnissen in Verbindung stehen, nach Erfüllung. Da Erregung den Schlaf gefährden würde, werden die Wünsche durch „Verdichtung“ und „Verschiebung“ verschleiert. Die Interpretation von Träumen mithilfe eines Therapeuten macht zuvor unbewusste innere Störungen und Zwiespalte einer Bearbeitung zugänglich. Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) war ein österreichischer Neurologe, Tiefenpsychologe, Kulturtheoretiker und Religionskritiker. Er war der Begründer der Psychoanalyse und gilt als einer der einflussreichsten Denker des 20. Jahrhunderts. Seine Theorien und Methoden werden bis heute diskutiert und angewendet.

Women and Democracy in Cold War Japan

Women and Democracy in Cold War Japan offers a fresh perspective on gender politics by focusing on the Japanese housewife of the 1950s as a controversial representation of democracy, leisure, and domesticity. Examining the shifting personae of the housewife, especially in the appealing texts of women's magazines, reveals the diverse possibilities of postwar democracy as they were embedded in media directed toward Japanese women. Each chapter explores the contours of a single controversy, including debate over the royal wedding in 1959, the victory of Japan's first Miss Universe, and the unruly desires of postwar women. Jan Bardsley also takes a comparative look at the ways in which the Japanese housewife is measured against equally stereotyped notions of the modern housewife in the United States, asking how both function as narratives of Japan-U.S. relations and gender/class containment during the early Cold War.
