Adaptations: Disquisitions on Psychoanalysis by Dr. Phillip Freeman

By Dr. Phillip Freeman

i've got heard audio cassette types of some of those remarkable speeches, simply because bootleg tapes of some of them have circulated in my circles. The speeches are a literary style invented by way of Phillip Freeman, compounded out of the spirit Freud's essays, the main remarkable kind of collage lecture, the main refined and savage standup comedy i've got ever heard, and, probably oddly, the main relocating and persistent of marriage ceremony toasts. yet possibly now not so oddly, for those addresses are a wedding of affection, wit, nice studying and colossal intelligence. i do know not anything remotely like them. it's a marvelous stroke of success that they've stumbled on their means into print.

Psychoanalysts are inclined to take themselves a lot too seriously…but Phillip Freeman has an antidote… he holds up a enjoyable residence replicate … ruthlessly surveying the sphere, mocking each sacred cow he can locate and puncturing any balloon that has gotten overinflated. This he does with deadpan psychotic humor and impossible to resist allure. fortunate Boston! Phillip is the Shakespearean idiot who illuminates, and thereby ameliorates, the tragedy.
Owen Renik, MD, San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute

… a operating critique of the country of the self-discipline, extra effectively, a critique of the country of self-discipline itself in our time… Dr. Freeman has produced brilliantly inventive, psychoanalytically educated satire. He has accredited himself, as Freud wrote of the social satirist Heine, "to provide expression—jokingly, in any respect events—to mental truths which are critically proscribed." In taking this hallowed liberty, Dr. Freeman has produced a piece that merits examining through the widest attainable viewers.
