TED On Michel Onfray's Book On Freud:
"Freud lied about his success with his now famous cases - later research has shown that they were not cured and some were ill for years afterwards. Sergei Pakejeff, the poor "Wolf Man", had analysis for six decades with various Freudian analysts, despite Freud's prouncement of his being "cured".
Freudwas not the great pioneer that he and his disciples claimed, he did not "discover" the unconscious (see "The Unconscious Before Freud." L.L. Whyte) nor was he the first to write about it at length, e.g. Hartmann wrote a "Philosophy of the Unconscious" when Freud was just 12. When he was original he was wrong, e.g. in the over-emphasis on sexuality, as pointed out by Jung
Freud borrowed from others but concealed his borrowings in order to satisfy his vanity; he wanted to be regarded as on a level with Copernicus and Darwin. He then established the group of loyal followers (dissenters like Jung were expelled) to propagate the myth of the great pioneer and the tradition that analysts must themselves undergo analysis according to the Freudian tenets (making them compliant believers from the beginning).
Members of the still powerful corporation guild of psychoanalysts in France have come out in full force to launch concerted attacks against Michel Onfray. Some members of this corporation have accused this brilliant subversive philosopher to be in cahoots with "neoliberalism" or "savage capitalism" of the era globalization. A preposterous accusation (Onfray is very left-wing).
BHL (Bernard Henri Levy) started his attacks against Michel Onfray in the media way before he read even one single sentence of the book. But Onfray counterattacked by brushing aside baseless attacks not grounded in the actual reading of the book.."
