Blind Man Sees
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.
