It may be that the uncanny unhomely is something familiar homely homey that has been repressed and then reappears and that everything uncanny satisfies this conditionWe once regarded such things as real possibilities; we were convinced that they really happened Today we no longer believe in them having surmounted such modes of thought Yet we do not feel entirely secure in these new convictions; the old ones live on in us on the look out for confirmation Now as soon as something happens in our lives that seems to confirm these old discarded beliefs we experience a sense of uncanny and this may be reinforced by judgments like the following So it's true then that you can kill another man just by wishing him dead that the dead really go on living and manifest themselves at the scene of their former activities and so onThe uncanny element we know from experience arises either when repressed childhood complexes are revived by some impression or when primitive beliefs that have been surmounted appear to be once again confirmed FREE READ Ù PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Sigmund Freud
