Burying Freud

[ Burying Freud Homepage | Freud's Seduction Theory Homepage ]

The confirmatory evidence of the tenets of psychoanalysis is like the confirmatory evidence of anything else, something that can be debated and observed endlessly. The debate, the savage assault against Freud, can be very lively but it doesn't settle anything.

I think that you, Crews, and Tallis, are in love with dialectical or epistemological refutation of Freud. For whatever reason, I don't care to speculate, this seems to make your blood boil. In grandiose fashion (sometimes intoxicated arrogance) Crews believes his verbal attack will prove fatal to the discoveries of psychoanalysis. This is your sex! You invite me and others to struggle with you as if the world depended upon it. Maybe, your world.

Debate serves a lot of purposes, a defensive function too, but I think if that you are interested in the mind and the tenets of psychoanalysis, you should shift in the direction of observation, self-observation.

In fact you may share many interests with Freud, who was also iconoclastic in his assault against prevailing views of the mind which omitted unconscious processes.
