136 Notre Dame de Paris Our Lady of Paris (in French) A Gothic cathedral church Built between

137 les Champs Elysees & Arc of Triumph

138 Sigmund Freud Sigmund Freud ( ) an Austrian physician and neurologist the father of psychoanalysis, a new school of psychology embodying revolutionary and controversial view of human behaviour

139 Important Freudian Conception The Unconscious Freud divided human personality into three functional parts Id, Ego and Superego.

140 The Unconscious According to Freud, many slips that people make in their daily life, the things they mishear and the strange misunderstandings are not mistakes at all; they are the workings of the unconscious mind. Many of our experiences, especially our childhood experiences, are unforgotten and buried in the unconscious. They continue to influence our behaviour.

141 In Freudian Psychology Id: the one of the three parts of the mind that is completely unconscious, but has needs and desires Ego: the one of the three parts of the mind that connects a person to the outside world, because it can think and act; conscious self Superego: the moral self or conscience; the one of the three parts of the mind that is partly conscious and that rewards and punishes us by our feelings of guilt or rightness, according to our respect for the rules of society

142 Oedipus Complex This is a Freudian term originating from a Greek tragedy, in which King Oedipus killed his father and married his mother. According to Freuds psychosexual development theory, children are born with powerful sexual urges. From 3 to 5, they become especially aware of the differences between themselves and members of the opposite sex.

143 Oedipus Complex In this period, a child becomes a rival for the affection of the parent of the opposite sex. The boy wants to win his mother for himself, so he tends to be hostile to his father. The girl does exactly the opposite. However, neither the parent nor their children are aware of this. It is an unconscious process.

144 James Joyce ( ) An Irish writer, perhaps the most important fiction writer in the 20th century His works are character- ized by experiment with language, symbolism and such narrative techniques as interior monologue and stream of consciousness.

145 James Joyces Works 1. Dubliners (1914) a collection of 15 short stories 2. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) 3. Ulysses (1922) his masterpiece, a modern mans voyage and adventures in life 4. Finnegans Wake (1939) an autographical novel
