Freudian Schlep

Gavin Turk - Wittgenstein's Dream

I've an admittedly conflicted relationship with Sigmund Freud based partly in personal experience with Freudian analysis.  A neverending excavation of the past seems a luxury fitting only for those who've established some kind of level ground or safety net in the present.  When a person (myself for example) is punching through hostile circumstance in the present life requires more immediate solutions, doesn't it?  Beating about in early childhood amounts to pseudo-scientific, pseudo-intellectual wankery that has little practical use when trying to block hard punches to the head.

Well, whatever.  That said.
