Myth of The Freudian Unconscious" (2000) Abstract:
This thesis investigates the nature of the Freudian Unconscious and its
relationship with Surrealist poetry.
The findings of recent neurophysiological research and
dream-sleep experiments suggest that such an Unconscious is a myth.
The concept of nonconscious mental states, which are controlled
by precise ratios of the brain's chemicals, as opposed to a dynamic,
autonomous Freudian Unconscious is explored.
Analysis of the surrealist project itself, and a comparison of
surrealist poetry with computer generated poetry, further supports the
scientific evidence. Whilst
this thesis is not specifically about Artificial Intelligence some of my
findings are directly relevant to this field of research.
It also shows that the surrealists' belief, that they could
circumvent the control of logical reasoning in their literary and
artistic creations, was misguided.
It was not the purpose of this thesis to provide irrefutable
evidence as to the non-existence of the Freudian Unconscious but to
establish sufficient doubt to justify further detailed research.
