This is important to remember.
While Freud played a crucial role in the development of modern psychology and therapy, his theories were all untestable at best and rampagingly sexist at worst. He had absolutely no empirical data and his theories, while very thought out, are complete bullshit.
It is good to learn about him and his theories to have a basis for understanding modern psychology, but under no circumstances should his work be applied to anything beyond a historical and academic perspective.
I am so thankful for this post
Look, basically, Sigmund Freud found himself thinking about banging his mum (given the whole ‘Freudian slip’ thing, it’s possible that he thought about banging pretty much everyone ever, and it was the point where it included his mum that tipped it all over the edge), and everything from there on out is his desperate attempt to rationalise and normalise it by trying to make out that it was something that happened to everyone.
Friends don’t let friends take Freud seriously.
you can take one man’s trash to another man’s treasure but you can’t make it drink
