Sigmund Freud Reading Response

I have read other works of Sigmund Freud in many different classes and usually it seems like he states similar ideas. One of the ideas I learned in my education classes and saw present in our classical theory class, were about the stages of life that Freud discusses. The stages of life are oral, anal, phallic, latency and genital. In this book however we see he mentioned oral, anal, latency and genital, the phallic stage was not mentioned. In phallic stage he speaks about the Oedipus and Electra complexes.

Freud present ideas that are very interesting and sometimes hard to agree with. I know when he wrote  during his time, his theories were refuted and I think even today it is hard to accept his theories. His second essay, “Infantile Sexuality”, it kind of hard to imagine a young baby being a sexual being especially because the baby and  sex organs are not full developed. Nevertheless, he points out that a baby sucks it’s thump because it is a pleasurable things that mimics breastfeeding. So when he speaks of sexuality, he speaks about it in more of a pleasure seeking way. (Not real sure about this.) Then, the baby realizes that it manipulate and can do certain things that will bring it pleasure. So at a certain age babies realize they can control their excrement.

I thought the second essay was more interesting than the first. He presented some interesting ideas but I don’t know if I am fully convinced. (I don’t think my opinion has anything to do with how he conducted research. After reading Du Bois and his narrative, shifting over to an author who gives facts without any example is harder to read. I think it would be interesting if he gave an example of a patience, although that’s is probably unethical. (Actually one of his contemporary, Carl Jung, gives an example of patient problems and its relation to his theory. )

Du Bois Reading Response

The reading for Du Bois was much more accessible than the other three readings we had for this class. Du Bois’s main target was racism. The chapters in the book started off with a song, which I skipped over because I thought that they were not important. However after class, it made sense to me why he had lyrics of songs during the beginning of every chapter. I believe the showed the rational and cultural equality between a both white and black cultures.

            In the forethought where Du Bois talks about how he has stepped within the veil, I thought that was pretty strong line. The veil meaning, you can see everything out of the veil but cannot see within the veil.  One of the biggest concepts that Du Bois talks about in the book is the double consciousness. During that time period African Americans struggled the “multifaceted conception of self”, which is known as the double consciousness (looking at one’s self through the eyes of others).

Du Bois talks about how the blacks in the south should have the same equal rights as the whites, more over they should be treated with justice and equality.  I think Du Bois did a pretty good job with his book, it was a easy read, and it was easy to understand. The choice of his words was really powerful in my eyes. Overall I like Du Bois and his writing and his thoughts.
