Abstract

Following a series of questionnaire inquiries and a revised analysis of data obtained previously, the author presents a revised hypothesis concerning the culturalized expression of the Oedipus complex: “To achieve their sex-roles, males must achieve independence which involves loosening their Oedipal attachments to their mothers; females… need do neither but rather they need only to transfer their dependency from father to husband.” 19 references.
