The Closed Mind: A Roundtable Discussion Moderator: Jane S. Hall. Participants: Garcia Badaracco (Argentina) Ken Eisold (New York) Leo Rangell (Los Angeles)

An Open Mind is hard to find.  Why do human beings find it so difficult to be open minded, flexible, or willing to consider another way of thinking about something?

Introduction to the chapter:
This chapter adopts a new view of Freud’s 1897 shift in thinking about the human mind by casting it as a paradigm shift based on unconscious archetypes. The introduction of universals, which are neglected by mainstream psychoanalysts largely because they are expressed primarily through unconscious adaptations to death-related traumas, brings Freud and psychoanalysis into alignment with some of the greatest scientists and (more…)
