    the phenomenon of domestic violence against women which seems to have some sort of foothold in Australia and elsewhere.

    Well you know Australia has this masculine culture which is centred around alcohol, and I think that it encourages spousal abuse because if you let "your woman" get the upper hand then you lose your status as a male...very stupid.  But it's why I'm glad that some bars in cities like Sydney have earlier closing hours.

    Once one considers the contributions psychoanalysis has made to semiotics, epistemology, literary criticism and philosophy, I think it's easier to see how interest in psychoanalysis - with all its flaws - persists.

    What are those contributions though? I always thought Freud was pretty much an crusty old fart ¬¬

    I think the reputation thing is a good idea as long as people can't vote others down.

    I agree on this- this isn't the kind of site that should be voting peoples ideas down. But yeah it's a good idea.

    in some of the best-known TV series that feature psychoanalysis in any meaningful way (The Sopranos, Dexter) you do not hear the term "unconscious" at all.  You do, however, hear "subconscious," and my hunch is that that's because people can relate better to that than they can to the idea that there is a substrate of their psyche that is absolutely beyond consciousness.

    I am pretty sure that they discuss the unconscious in Dexter which was one of my favourite series of all time!! But I don't think I know what the difference between unconscious and subconscious is anyway..:$

    hi Tegan!

    i loved Tolkein too......i read the entire RIng series when I was in my early teens and ive never been the same since.  i thought the movies were crap though (sorry, please don't ban me Gord lol)...thought they were overdone and over the top.

    hi sorry i haven't been around for a while family stuff..

    wow I don't think i've ever heard anyone say the Tolkien movies were crap...i've seen them all many times and sometimes i'm too tired to stay up to watch all of them they're never crap.

     

    to each their own though :)
