Freud's Structural Model of the Psyche -- Research Starters Sociology

By: Vejar, Cynthia;

2009 / EBSCO


The foci of this paper circulate around the tertiary components that constitute the mental apparatus of Freud's structural model of the psyche: the Id, Superego, and Ego, and their corresponding extensions (e.g., ego ideal and defense mechanisms). Freud asserted that the combined interaction of such forces epitomized human cognitions and driving forces that establish psychological welfare, manipulate behavior, and induced subsequent relational transactions. Before launching into an overview of Freud's structural model of the psyche, a distinction between conscious and unconscious realms of existence, one of his most significant contributions, will be examined.
