  A psychoanalytic study of the myth of Dionysus and Apollo: two variants of the son-mother relationship by Deutsch, Helene, Pages: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Deutsch, Helene, Psychoanalytic study of the myth of Dionysus and Apollo. New York, International Universities Press []. A psychoanalytic study of the myth of Dionysus and Apollo: two variants of the son-mother relationship Author: Helene Deutsch ; New York psychoanalytic institute. For those intrigued by the study of the dreams of a culture or nation as embodied in legends, myths, and poetry, this thin volume is a psychoanalyst's holiday. The investigation and psychoanalytic study of two of the immortals on Olympus poses an interesting riddle.

In this enthusiastically youthful book, Helene Deutsch develops mythological biographies of Dionysus and Apollo. Using a combination of psychoanalytic approaches, she treats events in the stories as dreams, supplies missing connections by reconstruction, and treats multiple versions of the myths in different times and places as though they were the often contradictory data derived from different psychic levels. In The Birth of Tragedy from the Spirit of Music, Nietzsche claims that he observed two opposite elements in Greek tragedies, which he saw as metaphysical principles inherent in the nature of reality; he named them after two Greek gods: Apollo, the god of light, and Dionysus, the god of wine. Apollo, in Nietzsche’s metaphysics, is the symbol. Book Description. Dionysus, god of dismemberment and sponsor of the lost or abandoned feminine, originates both Jungian psychology and literature in Remembering terized by spontaneity, fluid boundaries, sexuality, embodiment, wild nature, ecstasy and chaos, Dionysus is invoked in the writing of C. G. Jung and James Hillman as the dual necessity to adopt and dismiss . Apollo and Dionysus: Gods of Art and Will In Nietzsche’s first book, The Birth of Tragedy, he introduces two principles with which he drives his discourse on the nature of art: the Apollonian dream, and the Dionysian states his purpose in writing the book, saying that “we will have achieved much for scientific study of aesthetics when we come, not merely to a logical.

DIONYSUS AND APOLLO. Dionysus, with the emotional din and clash of his music and the unrestrained freedom and passion of his worship, is often presented in direct contrast to Apollo, god of the lyre’s disciplined melody, reason, and self-control. The Apollonian and Dionysian is a philosophical and literary concept and dichotomy/dialectic, based on Apollo and Dionysus in Greek Western philosophical and literary figures have invoked this dichotomy in critical and creative works, most notably Friedrich Nietzsche and later followers.. In Greek mythology, Apollo and Dionysus are both sons of Zeus.   Dionysus (Greek: Διόνυσος Dionysos) is the god of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness, fertility, theatre and religious ecstasy in ancient Greek religion and myth. 1.
