“Every infant boy fears and resents his father and would like to eliminate him. The fear and hostility felt for the father are expressed in a cathartic “identification” with him. In the Freudian scheme, a child’s assumption of psychological masculinity is an impostor, motivated by unbearable dread. As junior is recognized as a chip off the old block – the identification with the boy’s father, or some father figure, becomes locked into his mature personality.”
