This project analyzes how Freud's theory of the Oedipus complex expands beyond the son's sexual desire for his mother to an antagonistic relationship with the father. A son can never get over being in conflict with the father, and thus he always both hates and loves the father. This ambivalent relationship is then where Freud ends up with the Oedipus complex and we understand the importance of this when we get to his text Moses and Monotheism. This text examines through Jewish tradition why we should always be ambivalent towards the father.
