Phallic symbolism & castration themes are common in human history. Psychoanalysts affirm that the castration complex is continually met with in analytic situations. Drawing evidence from myth, clinical practice & the sexual theories of children, Freud established the castration complex as a crucial determinant of human sexual behavior & personality development. In this book, Ward reaffirms the truth of Freudís contentious vision. Using an array of clinical, biographical & cultural references, he describes the symptomatic reality it explains & shows the influence of castration anxiety in the most unlikely areas of our everyday lives. From fashion to football, in art & science, through jealous rages, & moments of genius, the effects of the castration complex are ever present & incalculable.
