Burying Freud

"Burying" With Nothing - Dr. Tallis's Essay

In short, I think one should be extremely cautious, when criticizing a therapeutic method (and whatever more it may be considered), which has brought benefits to thousands of people (to be modest in order of magnitude), around the world, during the last 90 years. We must consider the fact that lots of persons, with psychological suffering ("ordinary pelople", we might say), have undergone psychoanalysis, and testify the personal benefits they got, with definite improvements in their lives.

The author unregard the fact that the theories of psychoanalysis are daily tested, clinically, in consultation rooms all around the world. The problem to be considered, in my point of view, is the lack, until today, of such an instrument capable to take accurate and reliable measures of events that take place in an intersubjective space, like a relationship between two persons, and most, into one's inner world, conscious and unconscious.

But, anyway, to ascribe the development and the spread of Freud's ideas, of the psychoanalysis itself, all over the world, from decades ago till nowadays, to his extraordinary argumentative capacity or to his quality as a writer (which are, both, actually true), seems to me like a very dangerous simplification when discussing about science. Finally, I'd like to greet Dr. O'Neil (McGill University) for his meticulous and accurate discussion of the contradictions and mistakes of Dr. Tallis's essay.
