InForm 046 - Why Do People Enjoy Hating Freud So Much?

INTRO:
In this episode of the InForm Podcast, Neil & Jared explore why people enjoy hating Freud so much. Our arguments are that the education system does a horrible job of presenting Freud's work, an abundance of myths about Freud, Anti-Semitism, and the friend/enemy distinction. We sort of wandering all over the place talking about a few reasons we believe people dislike Freud so much, but we still have a lot more that we want to say. Ergo, this episode is the first in a series, which we needed to cut short when a child interrupted the recording.

  • Giorgio Agamben & Homo Sacer.
