“whats on a mans mind”


Freud also believed that the libido developed in individuals by changing its object, a process codified by the concept of sublimation. He argued that humans are born “polymorphously perverse”, meaning that any number of objects could be a source of pleasure. Freud believed that the function of dreams is to preserve sleep by representing as fulfilled wishes that would otherwise awaken the dreamer. Freud believed that dreams have two contents: manifest and latent. Manifest content of the dream is the one that is seen; this, often bizarre and nonsensical, content is the ‘clean’ version of the dream produced by the super ego. Latent content, on the other hand, is the actual meaning which underlies the manifest content and it is, often violent or sexually themed, produced by Id.
