An abstract is required. There are other motivations for doing what we do – we might use displacement, which means that we direct hostility towards an essentially innocent party. Projection is another mechanism, which means that we see things in others that are abhorrent to oneself. Moreover, the psyche is mainly made up of three distinct areas – the id (primal), the superego (societal norms), and the ego (the mediator between the id and the superego). Adolf Hitler was a man of complex psychological motivations, many of which can be explained by Freud’s basic theory. This paper will seek to apply Freud’s theory to the psyche and motivations of Hitler.Sigmund Freud’s theory regarding psychological processes was known as psychoanalytic theory. According to Freud, the unconscious mind is the main driver for how we behave. For instance, Freud believed that hysteria was the unconscious mind’s reaction to severe trauma. How this works is that repressed memories, inaccessible to one’s conscious mind, reside in the unconscious, and manifest as hysterical symptoms. These hysterical symptoms then become a way for the unconscious to release these memories and trauma. Repression thus became an underpinning for his theory, although he also had the theory that repressed memories are actually desired as opposed to pure memories (Murray, 1983). . . . . To this end, Hitler may be analyzed by the theory that trauma in his life caused hysteria and repression and that the hysteria manifested in the extreme thought processes that he had regarding the Jews. The particular trauma which might have caused this to manifest was when Hitler was hospitalized at Pasewalk when he was only 29 years old. This occurred when he was serving in the German army during World War I. While Hitler was in the Pasewalk hospital, the hospital was attacked with tear gas. As a result of the tear gas incident, Hitler lost his eyesight. Hitler was also an aspiring artist during this time, and, because of the tear gas blinding him, he was not able to draw (Coolidge, 2007).
