Example text

Fudin (1999, p. 235), for his part, concluded that … none of his [Silverman’s] experiments can be replicated, and… no experiment using Silverman’s procedures can yield unambiguous positive results… Freud and the unconscious 64 As we see, contrary to a prevalent claim, Sigmund Freud did not “found” the unconscious, and his contribution was not wholly original either—he learned from his contemporaries Friedrich Nietzsche and Arthur Schopenhauer more than he was willing to admit. Charcot also used the notion of the unconscious for clinical purposes before Freud.

People were fascinated by the work of skilled clockmakers, and through them they were able to grasp how complex actions could arise from simple and concrete mechanisms. Thus, they also began to think about other things in that way—a mechanical world-view emerged. The cornerstones of that world-view were atomism, reductionism, and mathematical laws: any phenomenon could be broken down into small parts that behaved according to strict laws, and made sense of by analysing them (Channel, 1991, pp. 11–29).

It appeared—like the soul in the pineal gland—in the form of a wise little man doing a complicated task. Thus, the question arose of how censorship—which is just a part of the mind/brain—could know which ideas were too threatening if they appeared in the domain of consciousness.
