There were two great minds in this century One such mind was that of Sigmund Freud 1856- 1939 In the year 1923 he created a new view of the mind That view encompassed the idea we have split personalities and that each one have their own realm their own tastes their own principles upon which they are guided He called these different personalities the id ego and super ego Each of them are alive and well inside each of our unconscious minds separate but yet inside the mind inhabiting one equal plane Then there was Nietzsche 1844-1900 who formulated his own theories about the sub-conscious His ideas were based on the fact that inside each and every one of us is a raging battle going on This battle involves the two most basic parts of society the artistic Dionysian and the intelligent Apollonian Sometimes one being becomes more dominant than the other or they both share the same plane Even though individually created these theories could be intertwined even used together Thus it is the object of this paper to prove that the Freudian theory about the unconscious id and ego are analogous to the idea on the Apollonian and Dionysian dualitys presented by Nietzsche The division of the psychical into what is conscious and what is unconscious is the fundamental premise of psycho-analysis and it alone makes it possible for psycho-analysis to understand the pathological processes in mental life Freud The Ego and the Id 3 To say it another way psycho-analysis cannot situate the essence of the psychial in consciousness but is mandated to comply consciousness as a quality of the pyschial which may be present Freud The Ego and the ID 3 that what we call our ego behaves essentially passively in life and that as he expresses it we are lived by unknown and uncontrollable forces Groddeck quoted from Gay 635 Many if not all of us
