My Heroes: (5) Sigmund Freud

Sigmund Freud 1856-1939
Most of the photographs that I have seen of Sigmund Freud show him looking straight back at the camera in a defiant manner. He was always confident of his theories and vigourously defended his findings. Although he was a ground-breaking pioneer many of his ideas have been superceded and challenged but that is often the fate of an original thinker. When he published The Interpretation of Dreams in 1900 he introduced the concept of the unconscious mind to the public and The Psychopathology of Everyday Life in 1901 dealt with the theory that nothing one said was an 'accident' but the result of the activity of the 'dynamic unconscious'; that is what we now refer to as a 'Freudian Slip'.
He went on to shock the world with his ideas on how the sex drive was the primary motivational force in mankind (and, later, womankind) eg. the Oedipus Complex. Whatever one thinks of his work now, and there are plenty of detractors, I admire the way he confidently published absolutely revolutionary ideas and generated a leap forward in understanding ourselves that others have taken forward and refined.

This is how I fixed my sidebar. In the section where you have about me I had to go into my profile from the edit profile on dashboard and I had to delete some of the information displayed, down to about 1 line. make sure you save changes. then what I did was to go into the change settings tab on dashboard and select template. then select pick new. this will give you a new selection of templates to use. pick one different to what you already have and then make sure you save it. This fixed my sidebar and it went back to the top. I did not lose any of my blog posts or pictures. It only changes the template. But if you had made changes before ie: you had links under the edit me on your sidebar they will lost, but you don't have any so it should be okay. It took a couple of hours before I saw complete changes on blog but that might just be my service provider. I got help from other bloggers. one said that my sidebar was having trouble wrapping the text as it was too much. so hope this helps, don't know about what you delete maybe you could put that on your blog name header.

This Freud is pretty sharp Bazza, and if I was free to speak, there is definite relation to these sexual theories of his and some very old and very hidden world truths and history that share these concepts in very interesting ways. Speaking of Kabbalah seen in a particular light or perspective.

Karen mentions sad new Bazza, I hope all is well with you and your family.

It is amazing how often Freud creeps into conversations.

Yes, a great man and a brilliant writer.

My ex-girlfriend once applied for a job in the Freud museum.
