The economic or . . the quantitative factor, which is intimately linked to the pleasure principle, dominates all its processes. , XXII: 73-4). How precisely are the id and the ego related? The ego literally springs forth out of the id over time. -Cs. , XX: 201). While the id represents human passions, the ego represents human reason or common sense. In an analogy that hearkens back to Plato’s comparison of the rational soul to a charioteer and the spirited and appetitive souls as white, obedient and black, disobedient horses in Phaedrus,36 Freud writes: The functional importance of the ego is manifested in the fact that normally control over the approaches to motility devolves upon it.
