Abstract:This study uses the psychoanalytic theory of folkloristics to develop the claim that international rainbow-serpent folklore is ubiquitously associated with incest and incest-related diseases. Using original fieldwork (conducted among indigenous Andean Quechua speakers) as an in-depth test case, in addition to global data from secondary sources, the dissertation makes the following falsifiable hypotheses: (1) Freud's theory of restricted symbolism can account for most symbolic representations in the data, however it is necessary to refer to Levi-Strauss to explain some forms of more abstract symbolism; (2) a chain of statistical implicational universals is devised to describe rainbow-serpent folklore, conceived after Greenberg's linguistic work; (3) folkloristic data from large parts of the world with literatures in Arabic, Chinese, and Russian will be compatible with all previous hypotheses; and (4) an analysis of the data on the medical anthropology of Andean rainbow-serpent folk-beliefs sheds light on the social functionality of rainbow-serpent folk-beliefs. Finally, a concluding section offers an evolutionary discussion on the ultimate origin of the dynamic psyche, accounting for the structure of dreams and folklore; and an evolutionary consideration of the universal preoccupation with incest seeks to resolve anthropology's famous incest debate through a consideration of primatological, psychological, and ethnographic data.
