The Great Mother: A Write Up of a Chapter Read in 'The Origins and History of Consciousness' by Erich Neumann

“In the adolescent stage of the ego the conscious and unconscious duality and the relation between them is played out and dramatised in the myth of the mother and son as lovers. Once again the evil mother is at play here, coming forth in the guise of a masked trickster using false sweetness to lure the son/ego to his own destruction for the Great Mother's own end.”
