Getting ready for my next course, but watching the best documentaries on BBC4. Last night’s Freud ‘Genius of the modern world‘ was thought provoking to say the least.
As the narrator revealed he was so often criticized as being unscientific! I became interested…no fascinated in this great man’s works many years ago when researching dream time. I will be re-reading ‘The Interpretation of dreams‘ again this summer.
How tragic it was that this brilliant man’s books were burned in the streets of Vienna during the second world war.
He was ahead of his time and definitely left us challenging the way we think and led the way for counselling…not to be a hostage to our past but become true masters of our own minds (as quoted within the program).
It ended with his own words:
‘In the end I succeeded but the struggle is not yet over’
