Some Clinical Illustrations of Freud's Analysis of the Uncanny: Martin Grotjahn. Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic, XII, 1948, pp. 57–60.

Ralph R. Greenson

Grotjahn presents several examples confirming Freud's concept of the uncanny. The uncanny feeling is experienced when old childhood beliefs in magical thinking, which have undergone repression, are remobilized and felt consciously, like the sudden reappearance of an old, unpleasant acquaintance one would rather have avoided. The phenomena of surprise and déjà vu bear a resemblance to the uncanny.
