Effects of Freudian Psychoanalysis

IMG-20140504-WA0014 There are certain theories that suddenly came up on the horizon and conquered the human minds without having given a second thought. Psychoanalysis is one such theory, developed in an infinitesimal amount of time. Compared with other scientific developments that took long time to get one idea after the other, the development of all such complicated structures and ideas like ids and egos, the tensions and the forces, the pushes and the pulls, seems to be too much for one brain or a few brains to have cooked up in such a short time, and such a hurried development is bound to have lapses. People like Freud, Adler, Darwin, etc. gave serious setback to the human thoughts and emotions through their theories and have had far reaching effects on human mind.

Freud and Adler, the two champions of Psychoanalysis, may somewhat seem to have differed on the ideological front, but the end result of their thought is one and the same. Freud was the creator of “conscious” and “unconscious” who and believed in a constant struggle between them. He propounded the theory that man’s unconscious whips instincts for evil and sexual licentiousness. He suggested that those who fail to fulfill the urges of the unconscious get inflicted with hysteria or nervous disorders and prescribed succumbing to the urges of the unconscious. As termed by Joad:

Where Freud has revealed the beast in man, Adler claims to have exposed devil.

Similarly, the modern psychologists have termed the man as nothing but a “carnal beast” free from ethical bounds. There is very minor difference between behaviourism and psychoanalysis. Behaviourism treats man as a mere machine without the freedom of choice in matters of action, while the latter recognizes the freedom of choice but consider it to be a slave of instincts. Much of the sexual anarchy in the western society stems from these materialistic concepts. It has progressed to the extent of even incest being seen as acceptable. All this is the result of the contributions by people like  Karl Marx, Freud, and Darwin. This permissiveness is permeating deep into the human society all over the world alongside the dazzling economic success of the west.

Thus, while the modern scientific discoveries point to the presence of a conscious brain behind the entire universe, the modern psychology has exerted contrary pulls over the human society. In the final analysis, it could be said that while materialism has begun to fade, the strangling hold of materialistic ideologies continues. Therefore, several of the interpretations from the point of view of mechanism, motion, and concept of matter and energy, have gone obsolete. That is why the contemporary materialist psychology has been rendered out of date. It is merely because it could not keep pace with modern discoveries.


About Imran Ali

IMRAN ALI, is an up-coming writer and columnist. His studies were interrupted when he, as a child of 14, simply told his father M. Sulemen, a businessman, that he just can't get what his school teacher teaches paying little attention to the weak students of the class. So, on a promise that he'll 'study at home' he never again saw the face of the school, though he carried his studies well to fullfill the promise of his; his experience as a volunteer(a dedicated social worker) provided him with material for his articles and writings. He first gained attention with ''Aurangzed as he was'' and ''New world Order 'Vs' Just world Order'' (September 2011, The Companion, English monthly, and several other magazines), probably his finest articles. Next 10 year he coming with his debut novel, and is fully dedicated on it's research. Taken together, his articles present a broad, naturalistic picture of Indian life. His subjects include History, the Indian peasantry, the bureaucracy, life of a downtrodden Indians and have nots, the emotional problems of the different classes, and, ominously, hallucination, Very new in Style and to Approach, Combining psychoanalysis with human behaviour. His writings well captures the collective psyche of the world as a whole. He's been a district level boxer. Known as a peoples magnet in his vast friends circle, and a booklover who humorously with pride discloses, '' I've read over hundreds of books relating to arts, literature, science, metaphysics, naturopathy and psychlogy. So, the conclusion here is easy to derive, that i, who was raised from childhood in a modern muslim belief have been mostly preferring reading all kinds of books rather than writing!'' His reading since childhood, has been mostly centered around knowing the truths[truth here means of all kinds humans ever categorized, mysteries and human psyche has given me a better understanding of the human soul, mind and spirit in collaboration with my Islamic teachings.] Since he started his reading at the age of 15 reading Stories of literary giants, like Leo tolstoy, George Orwell, and Guy de muppasant and many Indian masters like Sir Mohammed Iqbal(The Poet Of the East), Margret Marcus, Leopold weiss, and Manto. And their collective influence made me search for my own moorings, adapting my father's style of srorytelling. In the beginning, there was nothing magnificent in acquiring all this, from books, as it was nothing more beside his own interest, and his interest to help morally deprived and confused men he used to meet in parties and gatherings. And amazingly, only a few years back, an up an coming, extraordinarily talented writer and one of his closest friends of his, who always loved his ideas gave rise to a writer hiding somewhere inside him. When while sipping the tea he insisted him to collect his ideas in a diary which keep on counselling youngmen of varieties every third day resulting in a great interruption in our appointed informational communication. Suddenly, at the very instinct, the idea occured in his mind of writing down these ideas effectively, concisely and pertaining to the questions of todays' youth who are short of time resolving them. And with him as his inspiration, he picked up the pen, and started unfolding, writing in the name of the architect of this whole universe. Which is none other than ''Allah.''

  1. What a brilliantly written article sir ji…You yourself is a philosopher!

  2. The philosophical attempt to get into the skin of the spirit of true psychoanalysis of human nature deals with the ventures into the human mind through the study of freud, Marx and other master of psycho analysis, is so involving and thoughtful that you try to consider it many a times before reaching any sensible conclusion that leads to a certain personal belief that is worth considering for the mass.

    This autopsy of psychoanalysis is not just told by a philosophically illustrious young man, instead, in this particular work credited to his name, he has taken the magical services of a whole lot of great pychoanalysts…

  3. Before reading this great peace of writing i had i had the good fortune of reading Freud and Marx and many others too, and that is the reason it made the experience more unforgettable. Imran Ali is the talent to watch. He is fiercely thoughtful writer, and indeed this article is the culmination of all these years of deep reading.

    To contemplate on the technical aspects without mentioning the gripping style that the writer has conjured would amount to a gross injustice, so let me first say that the theme is peerless and and the telling engrossing.

    The style reminds us of Bertrand Russell. And the whole Article is woven around a web of Aristotelian moments- those invisible atoms of time.

    In this masterly work all of his last works come filtering down to the reader in a most beautiful of waves in the form of question ringing in ones thoughtful mind.

    And in ones mind these same above asked questions live on…forever.

  4. I agree with Mr. Asad! This article does Justice to the true spirit of Psychos that make up stupid principles of Psychoanalysis!

  5. This article could be understood by even a naive reader. Good work!

  6. I came across this article randomly and found it very very interesting!

    • If you look at all of the complicated ideas that they have developed in an infinitesimal amount of time, if you compare to any other of the sciences how long it takes to get one idea after the other, if you consider all the structures and inventions and complicated things, the ids and the egos, the tensions and the forces, and the pushes and the pulls, I tell you they can’t all be there. It’s too much for one brain or a few brains to have cooked up in such a short time.[

  7. What a brilliant article!!!!

  8. All man-made theories consist of half truths and half assumptions in the first place, and those half assumptions put even those half truths into doubt by the end. Human mind and intellect is very limited and cannot perceive anything in its totality. So are the theories cropped out of it. These theories serve only as digressions for mankind from the true path frameworked by the religion. The problem is that the people give too much time to understand the words of men but not the words of God.

  9. Found This really interesting

  10. Hello Imran, Psychology, psychoanalysis and behavioural and neurosciences have been coopted into military, policing and surveillance industry via technology. Little is understood, what or how this is being done and what ethical safeguards exists against manipulation Please pursue this and tell the world.
