“After a serious reading of Freud’s Civilization and its Discontents, it seems as if this same vision of humans as the more or less helpless playthings of unconscious drives, instincts, and compulsions was presented by modern depth psychology — making it yet another partner, along with cosmology and genetics/sociobiology, in the general reduction of the ‘human’ to soulless insignificance and miniscule irrelevance.” — Paul De Fatta
