      Dr. Seuss Background
    • He was born May 6, 1856 in Czech Republic and died on Sept 23, 1939 at the age of 83.
      Sigmund is an Austrian neuropsychologist, and is one of the major intellectual figures of the 20th century
      He is known as the founder of psychoanalysis
      Other theories that Freud is known for are
      Freud was interested in the unconscious mind including interpretations of dreams as well as the relation between the conscious and unconscious mind (Id Ego and Superego)
      Sigmund Freud
    • Three Point Approach
    • The Id, Ego and Superego is part of the Freudian theory of personality
      Sigmund Freud’s Theory
    •  The id is the impulsive, child-like portion of the psyche that operates on the "pleasure principle" and only takes into account what it wants and disregards all consequences.
      Id is the instinctual
      For example– a baby that cries because it is hungry—it wants it now no questions asked.
    • Ego is the part of our personality that recognizes that our behaviors have consequences. The Ego is the balance between the Id and the Super ego. Ego controls the mental process of reasoning and problem solving to satisfy both the Id and Super ego. This is represented by a person having an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other.
    • Superego is the part that represents the moral part of personality. This part dictates our beliefs of right and wrong and could be represented by the angel sitting on someone’s shoulder
    • Read Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat and analyze the character according to Sigmund Freud’s theory on the id, ego and superego.
      In a paragraph or two write about which of the characters are Id, Ego or Superego and find support from the book.
      Make sure to quote what passages you took from the book and what pages they are from.
