Emmett Wilson, Jr.

Bergeret re-examines Freud's comments on his memory disturbance on the Acropolis which he wrote of in his 1936 letter to Romain Rolland. Bergeret suggests many lapses and faults in Freud's self-analysis of the incident. He sees the disturbance of memory as a screen memory for other elements. One theme not discussed by Freud was the reference to his younger brother, Alexander, who accompanied Freud on the trip. Bergeret believes Freud must have been aware of the nearness of Thebes which had been destroyed by Alexander the Great. This theme, together with references detected by Bergeret to the wayward Uncle Joseph, leads Bergeret to conclude that the disturbance had many more oedipal implications than Freud was able to elaborate. The "passport" that Freud lacked was that of an authentic analysis with another. This would have permitted the transference to develop and would have permitted Freud to cross into a domain of symbolic memory which is unavailable in autoanalysis.
