@ Samsa. Gotta ya.

@Katja. Yes I fully agree.

In reference to the current issue on Freud however, it appears that somewant to continue to try and sneak Freud in through the backdoor. While others are doing legitimate work which notes some aspects of psychoanalysis that hold water.

In the end though this quote from J. Allan Hobson from the blog I linked to is just perfect:
With respect to dreams, Sigmund Freud was not only not right. He was dead wrong. And so are Turnbull and Solms (2007) in their desperate effort to save Freudian psychoanalysis from the junk heap of speculative philosophy. Neuroscientists, psychologists, and psychiatrists beware: you are being led down the garden path by this pair of misguided neo-Freudians.
