The obvious case to test the family socialization model of Deutsch and Erikson is the history of modern Poland, a naturally poor country with open forest and steppe frontiers, and the geopolitical misfortune of being surrounded by strong, voracious imperial neighbors—Romanov Russia, Hohenzollern Prussia, and Habsburg Austria.  But the flame of Polish national identity was kept alive and fueled in the Polish family, home, and church.  This is the province of psychoanalytic research on the internalization of trust and fear.

Freud omitted this claim from the published version. , 11: 155. , 23: 20­26. , 28.  1; 111­123. : Harvard University Press, 1992), 102­103.  I have brought the translation closer to the original German.  Breasted, The Dawn of Conscience (New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1933), 292­298; Breasted, A History of Egypt (New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1923), 376­378.  (New York: Basic Books, 1955), 2: 262­290; Leonard Shengold, "A Parapraxis of Freud's in Relation to Karl Abraham," Imago 92 (1972): 123­159.

The archeologists' work swept the educated public in its wake.  Freud sees Leonardo's homosexuality in this infantile fantasy, in the interpretation of which the vulture represents a new figure on the psychoanalytic scene: the phallic mother.  It was the Gorgon's fierce face that adorned the breast and shield of Athena to keep her male antagonists at bay.  Only later are they split into autonomous antithetical, or complementary, terms.  But the turn to Moses and the saving of the Jews led Freud away from the new veins he had opened in his first Egyptian dig.
