An interesting article. I hadn’t known about Horney and now I’ll spend some time finding out more. As for psychoanalysis, it continues to astonish me that more than 150 years after Darwin published his theory of evolution, the baroque and evolutionarily impossible nonsense of Freud and his contemporaries still has any credibility whatsoever. It’s akin to believing in anti-gravity chewing gum decades after Einstein published his paper on General Relativity. Perhaps if Horney had acquired some understanding of evolution she could have made even greater contributions in her field.
