Joseph William Slap

The Signorelli incident described by Freud in Psychical Mechanisms of Forgetting (1898) and in The Psychopathology of Everyday Life (1901) is elaborated in two directions. Freud, whose focus was on the mechanisms of repression, was satisfied to indicate he was avoiding the theme of 'death and sexuality'. Wilden attempts to show that this theme pertained to Freud's Oedipal struggle with his father, recently dead. Freud employed a diagram to help demonstrate the nature of the association between the lost name and the repressed theme; Wilden reworks the material using a form of schematic representation originated by Jacques Lacan, a French depth psychologist.
