    Freud as one of the 20th century’s great poets, and meant as a compliment. That’s very insightful and I agree. Another fine lecture, it’s a real privilege to see these.

    Brilliant. Brilliant Brilliant! The idea that Psychology is a "soft" science and negative criticism of the theories of Freud as not scientific I have heard before. What makes your lecture so convincing is the knowledge and detail you add to your analysis that I agree with. In addition you add humor that makes this lecture not only entertaining but plausible and convincing on an "unconscious" level- we more often agree with people we can laugh with. The idea of a Primal Family in Totem and Taboo as Freud's source for where we get the unconscious- you blew away as equating that notion with Santa Claus- imagination and no proof in extremis.

    This, in my humble opinion, has been the best introduction to Freud! i absolutely agree with your statement "Freud is one of the great poets in the 20th Century." Because what he said, was in line with the Romantic movement, ie, sublimation of our desires and feelings unto literature, as in the case of Wordsworth- in poetry. Thank you so much, Professor!!

    38:56 *Science of psychoanalysis* “It is like literary criticism or theology right, in _that_ sense it is scientific. It is not scientific in the sense the physics is scientific. The unconscious is not an entity in the sense that the liver is an entity. When you stop making those category mistakes you can begin to really appreciate what a great thinker Freud is because he’s talking about something, the internal contents of our psyche, that just resists strict hard shelled scientific discussion.”
    “The truth is that which runs after truth.” -Lacan
    “Science fiction, like psychoanalysis, holds open the place of truth as a hole in knowledge and thus does not subsume certainty under the category of knowledge.” - Theresa Giron

    Ive always thought of Freud was more directly talking about the Archetypical Man and Woman rather than the father or mother. I know when I was younger and first exposed to Freud I missed the points entirely cause I thought or was perhaps educated to think it was all about sexual gratification in a subliminal way. Now I see it more as we develop our ideal Male and female figure then we relate it to the most prominent in the real world, and we develop ourselves based upon the unity of each ideal.

    my perception it that freud very quickly forgot the reality that he was building off of, and ended up constructing a vast and fabulous mansion of of psychological thought atop a scant few skinny poles that does not stand under it's own weight when brought out of the paper.
    I feel like his work is a cautious tale to always check your work from outside of your own perspective and understand when looking out on the lake there is so much that you do not see under the waters.

    I think of Rene Girard when Sugrue speaks of the broader German meaning of science. As our physical sciences become more ambiguous in findings, think of quantum sciences effect throughout other physical science, the categorical split between physical and psychological ‘sciences’ seems less. Oh, and by the way, let’s include the observer in all our observations; J. Krishnamurti remarks, ‘the observer is the observer.” And we know of the affect from observing atomic particles changing the result.

    The thing you've missed out is the importance of affect. Freud knows he's stumbled on the correct association or interpretation when it is accompanied by affect. And the more the affect the more significant the therapeutic finding or suggestion. When all affect is terminated then the analysis is over. At least as far as that particular symptom is concerned.
    I suspect that Auden too thought of Freud as a poet.
