Title: Totem and taboo: a review
Author: Monzani, LR
Abstract: From the myth of the primal horde presented by Freud in Totem and taboo we received an explanation of what would be the origin of civilization as we know it, from a founding act, a collective crime (conceived as real act) which has the civilization as result, and which derives all its features such as neurosis, incest, aggression, and also the opposite ones, in order to expose the history of its own psyche and its access to culture. Thus Freud responds affirmatively to the simple question: should one be included in the collective process? Therefore he articulates the individual psychology and the collective psychology, questioning both, sustaining the process of transit from nature to culture, from natural individuality to the cultural community considering that, in principle, there would be no priority of one psychology over the other, but simultaneity. Consequently, it is concluded that the problem is, therefore, reversed: it is not about the moral conscience leading to the impulsive renunciation, but the opposite: the impulsive renunciation creates the moral conscience.
