Speaking for psychoanalysis?

On November 2nd

A friend asked me if I am trying to “speak for psychoanalysis” in the blog. This made me think. I would no more speak for psychoanalysis than I would speak for America, or the East Coast, or for mammals. My point being that psychoanalysis is a big tent. There is plenty of variation and controversy within psychoanalysis, and I would be hard pressed on a good day to even tell you what these are. There is no Pope of psychoanalysis, no Czar, no party line, and no Kool-Aid to drink. Which I consider a good thing.

So, I’m just speaking for myself here. If I present my tribe in a good light, all the better.
