background of Freud

  • Freud (1856–1939) was a physician who created his psychosexual theory of development through his work with emotionally troubled adults
  • now considered controversial and largely outdated 

what is the psychosexual theory?

  • Sigmund Freud's theory of psychosexual development is based on the idea that parents play a crucial role in managing their children's sexual and drives during the first few years of life
  • Freud's structural model posits that personality consists of three interworking parts: the id, the ego, and the superego.

  • The five stages of Freud's psychosexual theory of development include the oral, anal, phallic, latency, and genital stages.

structural model

  • The id, the largest part of the mind, is related to desires and impulses and is the main source of basic biological needs
  • The ego wants to mediate between the id and the super-ego and is the conscious, rational part of the personality
  • The superego, develops through interactions with others (mainly parents) who want the child to conform to the norms of society


5 stages of psychosexual development

relation to "brave new world"

  • there is one dominating instance and that is the id
  • everyone belongs to each other and their life is based on having fun
  • they are full-time pleasure seekers
  • the only character we come across who have an ego are John and Bernard
  • John is a savage and has an id, super-ego and ego
  • Bernard also has an ego and it gets stronger as the book continues
