    sight is taken very literally in many senses. Not only does Oedipus take everything he sees at face value, but also he goes so far as to literally gouge his eyes out to “unsee” the horrors, which now surround him. For example, he asks “why should I see / whose vision showed me nothing sweet to see” (Sophocles 1334-1335). Here it is evident that physical sight is what has quite literally caused the demise of Oedipus. Sight is directly responsible for the path the story takes and the consequences each character faces. In comparison, in “A Scandal in Bohemia,” sight is taken in a bit of a less literal sense. While sight is naturally important to any detective work, it is not directly responsible for Holmes’ downfall. When Holmes is duped by Irene Adler, it is because of a combination of his hyper precision, miscalculations, and overconfidence. Despite Holmes technically “losing” the case, he does not feel the need to physically gouge his eyes out as a punishment, and therefore sight in this story takes on a different meaning. Just as physical sight dictates the course of Oedipus the King, Holmes’ over analyses dictate how the mystery unfolds. It is these differences that make each story unique and that have resounding implications in terms of the course each story…

    person died, only the fact that he didn’t solve the case in time. Despite of Sherlock’s inferiority and psychotic nature, it can be perceived that he is self-actualized. Sherlock can actually say he is self-actualized and Maslow would agree. Physiologically, he meets his needs. He eats well, sleeps fine, and drinks clean enough water to survival. He stays fairly healthy more or less, has enough clothes to keep him safe from the elements, and has a place to live. Safety, he meets because he is a…

    An Existentialist Pretending to be an Adlerian While I believe Adlerian therapy is the best practice for me working with clients, existentialism has played a primary role in my personal development over the past ten years. The concept that “The existentialist does not view death negatively but holds that awareness of death as a basic human condition gives significance to living” became crystal clear to me in 2006 (Corey, 2017, p 145). Following nearly a year of exponentially increasing pain, I…
