The Blind Man Sees

Freud's Awakening and Other Essays

2004 - Karnac Books

The papers in this book have been written over a period of fifteen years and tackle various subjects within psychoanalysis. The main theme to arise from these writings, and the central argument in  this book is the similarity between psychoanalysis and religion.

  Psychoanalysis  can be seen as a scientific religion with Freud the leader of the movement. This book examines the various stages of  the journey made by a religious leader from "blindness" to "founding an institution" and finds counterparts in the development of psychoanalysis while drawing examples from Buddhism, Christianity and Islam.
