Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

So that's how their teaching Freudian psychoanslysis these days, eh? "Cognitive systems" (ego), "Affective systems" (id), and "Should-do" WHERE? (super-ego).

There's a diagram in The Ego and The Id in case you're wondering. Like a ven diagram, except for the blob bit for super-ego.

I know, I know. Needs moar fMRI.

That is nothing like psychoanalysis


She believed in nothing; only her skepticism kept her from being an atheist. -- Jean-Paul Sartre

Yet there it is:
reference to experimental observations ("neuro science")
of peripheral, somatic, and autonomic expressions (a/k/a "behaviors"),
produced by physiologic interactions contained to
anatomical structures of the human nervous system (taxonomy),
whose theoretical purposes are communicated by categorical analogies (semantic distinction)--
not one but three domains of conscious and unconscious significance only to other human beings.

Freud-Complete Works, "The Ego and The Id". pp 3967-4011

Coincidence? Non! Neologism.

Freud was a charlatan and psychoanalysis is pseudo-scientific poppycock.

Freud: The Making of an Illusion

Actual science:

Emotion and decision making

Descartes' Error: Emotion, Reason, and the Human Brain

Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst
