Example text

It is as if Schliemann had once more excavated Troy, which had hitherto been deemed a fable. At the same time the fellow is doing outrageously well. He demonstrated the reality of my theory in my own case, providing me in a surprising reversal with the solution, which I had overlooked, to my former railroad phobia. For this piece of work I even made him the present of a picture of Oedipus and the Sphinx. (CL, 391–392) With this letter of 21 December 1899 Freud excavates the infantile seduction scenes that since 1897 he has wanted to consider as mere fables, and, like a second Schliemann, he once again pronounces them truthful.

But another and stronger proof of this is furnished by the relationship of the infantile scenes to the content of the whole of the rest of the case history. It is exactly like putting together a child’s picture-puzzle: after many attempts, we become absolutely certain in the end which piece belongs in the empty gap; for only that one piece ªlls out the picture and at the same time allows its irregular edges to be ªtted into the edges of the other pieces in such a manner as to leave no free space and to entail no overlapping.

For more detailed information on this question, he refers his readers to the twenty-third of his Introductory Lectures, which we have been studying. It is rather difªcult, if not impossible, to imagine that the concept of primal fantasy, as expounded in the Introductory Lectures, should provide a satisfactory answer to Freud’s vacillation about truth and falsehood. Perhaps the most direct formulation of the unresolved dilemma that continued to haunt Freud can be glimpsed in a sentence he added in 1918 to his case study of the Wolf Man: “I intend on this occasion to close the discussion of the reality of the primal scene with a non liquet” (“From the History of an Infantile Neurosis,” SE 17:60).
