i know psychology has basically tossed this guy out the window. but speaking from personal experience, i think hes dead on the money. albeit i dont have a normal relationship with my parents at fucking all, but i think i speak for everyone when i say that those most intimate primary relationships shape our every belief. psychology has turned a 180 on this. but i dont see why psych today is mutually exclusive with freud . freud just looked at the emotional/experiential causes. psych today looks at genetic/hard environmental factors. case in point: anxiety disorders. psychiatry once believed freud like a bible, lumping everything all of these into neuroses based on childhood problems. "dont try to fix it" they said. now theyve realized psychology isnt a science, its a medicine. so theyve shifted to looking for genetic factors--stuff that ties OCD/trich/tourettes for example--and uses that information to create new drugs and behavioral therapies to help people cope. theyve stopped looking at childhood/memory and focused on biology. i think thats a mistake. psych has gone the way of hard science. from exploration of causes to finding solution to problems. y are these mutually exclusive? anyone know what im talking about?
