Agreed. Freud's findings haven't been taken seriously by academics for a while, now.
his techniques were revolutionary, but his reasoning and conclusions were horribly wrong.
Oedipus complex is nonsense! not even Oedipus had an Oedipus complex. I don't think anyone wants to kill their same sex parent and sleep with the opposite one. well, won't say no one, but it certainly isn't true about the general population.
his description of every phase of life as being sexual probably said more about him then the patients he treated. infants and toddlers don't have an oral fixation! taste is just one of the senses and it isn't the only way they interact with the world at that age. We just don't notice/care when they see, hear, smell, or touch things with their fingers.
