What Sigmond Freud Would Want You to Know
December 8, 2020
Hosted by Dr. Gary Bell
Freud revolutionized the understanding and treatment of mental disorders. He created the psychoanalytic theory of personality. But beyond this, he profoundly changed our understanding of humanity, thought, and culture. Freud, like Darwin, disturbed the sleep of the world by revealing hitherto unpalatable, but fundamental, truths about human nature. Contested and criticized, Freudian theory still permeates Western culture and scholarship. Modern neuroscience confirms Freud’s insight that most of mental life takes place outside of awareness. That the sexual drive and aggressive impulses are inseparable from human thought and action has been generally acknowledged.Though inevitably subject to continuing advances and modification, Freud's basic formulations about the functioning of the human mind have stood the test of time. Tune in and find out how important his theories are in our lives today!
