I've been accused of being shameless in bringing "work" to the blog. Ah, come on! Is that not the prerogative of the blogger? Are blogs not to vent the public as well as the private?
As for nouthetic versus psychotropic. When you land somewhere, let me know. Do the book and film mentioned in the previous comment give any solutions, or merely mock the question?
The very foundation of Freudian psychology is flawed. So until that is culled, and we can discern what we are labeling as "psychology," it would be hard to discuss the difference between the good, the bad, and the ugly of it. To "plunder the Egyptians" one must first value what the Egyptians have to offer.
Referencing my comment in the first paragraph: this issue doesn't feel like work. It hits a deep chord. Evidence? Skofinopolis... :-)
