    1. Reflective of a fairly old-fashioned and limited view of psychoanalysis. The author has the courtesy to use a different scholar's definitions for the Jungian terms because he admits that he doesn't understand Jung, but then writes his own pointless polemical 2-page entry about how Lacan was a crackpot who everyone hates without actually mentioning his ideas.
