Example text

In addition to formulating this sequence of processes, Freud proposed a set of properties that distinguished the operations of the two systems of the mind. Thus, the system UCS was said to operate according to the pleasure principle and the so-called primary processes that included the search for immediate discharge by the primitive, forbidden wishes within the system; an utter disregard for reality considerations (see however, Holt, 1967; Noy, 1969); the timelessness of its wishes; the absence of logic or rational thinking; and a fluidity of representations (one thing standing for another) through the mechanisms of symbolization, condensation and displacement.

The hallmark of psychoanalysis – the existence of unconscious contents (and processes) – suffered badly from this change in models. The term unconscious was no longer the defining feature of the systems of the mind. Instead, it was reduced to a quality of mental contents and operations, which could be either conscious or unconscious. The defining feature of a system of the mind was now the nature of its functions. Thus, the ego was seen to be responsible for executive functions, relating, tension regulation, psychological defences, and so on; the id was the seat of the instinctual drives of sex and aggression; and the superego was seen as the conscience and ego ideal.

Indications are, however, that natural selection has favoured the use of denial and our consequent ignorance over perceptiveness and understanding, which is a most unusual outcome in the evolutionary history of living entities. The ‘decision’ as to which events and meanings are ‘allowed’ to reach awareness and which are barred from doing so is a complex one. The nature of the trauma and its meanings, the ability of a given individual’s conscious system to tolerate disruptive inputs, and his or her prior emotional history, especially as it pertains to death-related traumas, all play a role.
