Did we get Freud all wrong? Celebrated British psychoanalyst Adam Phillips says that’s exactly what we’ve done. In this NEW and UNCUT interview, he tells Steve Paulson that we should read Freud as a great literary writer – on par with Kafka and Dostoevsky - not as a scientist of the mind. Phillips says we’ve barely begun to appreciate Freud’s radical insights.
