    Sigmund Freud conceptualised the working of the human mind through his famous ‘id, ego, and super-ego’ theory in 1923.

There is a familiar metaphor of angel and devil on…

    Freud and the Super-ego Our conscience is what separates us from animals. The ability to discern right from wrong and feel remorse manifests specifically in humankind. Sigmund Freud believed that our conscience, or “super-ego” as he referred to it, came from society’s initial rebellion against authority.
