@ Mr.Samsa: I was mostly thinking of Totem and taboo. I've heard philosophers refer to it, I don't think they buy the assertions at face value (at least I hope so!) but they still find it interesting and worth seriously thinking about.

@ Lazar that's an interesting point you make, and it fits with what I was whining about, the lack of communication across disciplines. So Freud sucks at biology and goes on to do bad psychology, then folk from another discipline come along and start to base their own claims on Freud's psychology and so on. If people only did their homework not just seize on something from another field just because it sounds nice :tongue:
