In his model of the id, ego, and superego, Freud emphasized drives, efforts to respond to reality and the external world, and the internalization of societal morals and values. Are there aspects of human functioning that were neglected in the development of these structural concepts? If so, what are they, and where and how might they be incorporated? Additionally, it has been said that psychoanalytic theory suffers from a number of cultural biases due to the limitations in kinds of patients seen and the Victorian era from which the concepts were originally derived. In today’s psychology, which concepts or parts of the theory have become a particular target for arguments of cultural bias?
