Who else thinks Sigmund Freud is a nut job?

I've been studying theories to do with child development .. and I've been reading up on some and they make some sense then you have crazy nut job FREUD who basically is sexually disturbed. I don't understand how his ideas could actually be proposed as a theory.

  • Don't make the mistake of assuming that just because he was eventually proven wrong on many levels, that a student like yourself suddenly knows more than he did.

    Freud was a product of his time. A puritarian sexually repressed era, where women went to doctors with cases of "hysteria" which amounted to being turned on with no sexual relief. And the doctors solution was to masturbate the woman until she orgasmed. Such behavior would be unthinkable today, but was common in his time.

    • im not saying I know more than he does but I just think its unusual . nd I'm sticking to the fact I think he has some very troublesome issues. if a person developed a theory liked that now which is very sexualiised it would either probably b considered a joke or the person is thougt to have some unrecovered issues.its just I've read this stuff my lecture gave me nd its very disturbing

  • Consider the available theories before Freud.

    Even it we eventually reject every theory he had it was a step forward.

  • When you're all coked up you're really confident. Freud's cocaine use probably helped him sell his outlandish ideas, to open minded psychologists. =P

  • He is mostly to blame for society's bias against introverts. That's my beef with him.

  • Freud was a nut job, his theories are more psuedo-psychology.
