5.10.2013 – Freud (lecture note I)

by deanmelbourne

Much of mental life including thoughts, emotions and motives is unconscious, which means we sometimes behave in ways that are inexplicable even to ourselves.”


Mental processes including emotions and motivations operate in parallel. We can have conflicting feelings about the same person or situation at the same time



Notes paraphrased from  2009 Richmond Lecture

Timothy L. Hulsey, VCU psychology professor and dean of the honors college engages students and faculty in the Core Course and the psychology, MLC and English departments in a general forum on the relationship between Freudian theory and mainstream American psychological science.
