Sample text

In its sister-religion, Mithraism, which was also Christianity's most successful rival, the central symbol of the cult was the sacri­ fice not of a ram but of a bull. The usual altarpiece showed the overcoming of the bull by the divine saviour Mithras. We have, therefore, a very close historical connection between Christianity and the bull sacrifice. Christianity suppressed this animal ele­ ment, but the moment the absolute validity of the Christian faith is shaken, that element is thrust into the foreground again.

87 Once again, I can only explain this difference as a compen­ sation by contraries. A man, in his conscious activity, plans ahead and seeks to create the future, while it is a specifically feminine trait to rack one's brains over such questions as who was somebody's great-great-aunt. But it is just this feminine passion for genealogies that comes out very clearly in Rider Haggard, garnished with Anglo-Saxon sentiment, and in Benoit the same thing is served up with the spicy admixture of a chronique scandaleuse.

This part has to be known, of course, but the other parts are equally impor­ tant, and particularly the question I have touched on here con­ cerning the relation between conscious and unconscious. A bio­ logically trained eye is not sufficient to grasp this problem, for in practice it is more than a matter of eugenics, and the obser­ vation of human life in the light of self-preservation and propa­ gation is too one-sided. Certainly the unconscious presents us with very different aspects; but so far we have fixed our atten­ tion too much on certain outward peculiarities, for instance the archaic language of the unconscious, and have taken it all quite literally.
