This is the film that a French court ordered removed from the internet, if you can imagine such arrogance.
Titled The Wall (Le Mur – Autistes sans frontières) it was made by Sophie Robert, and contains interviews with twenty-seven psychoanalysts. Three of them later sued Robert, saying that the film misrepresented their views, but the fact remains that France continues to deny autism and subjects sufferers to barbaric, mediaeval treatments including freezing.
What makes this topical is the fact that the psychoanalysts all repeat the nonsense promoted earlier this week by Tony Humphreys, the self-proclaimed most influential psychologist in Ireland, confirming for all to see that psychoanalysis is at best a pseudoscience on a par with chiropractic, and at worst a quasi-religion, valuing belief above evidence. Or, as Brian Hughes put it so eloquently, Scientists, to be blunt, don’t give fields like psychoanalysis a second thought.
Have a look at this and see what you think.
