Example text

He declares that the deductive process of hypothesis testing is the only valid scientific method and indicates that psychoanalysts have failed to establish criteria for refuting psychoanalytic principles – a necessary step for carrying out the deductive process. In short, Popper has argued that the inductive process amounts to a self-fulfilling prophecy and this means psychoanalysis is both untenable and untestable. But before we decide that Popper has sounded the death knell of psychoanalytic theory, we must consider whether he has possibly come to the right conclusion for the wrong reasons.

Rosal 1996; Roth 1987) have done so without the help of a theory of artistic creativity supplied by these approaches. Further, the art produced in the service of these approaches has been largely schematic, a psychoeducational tool used to assist in detecting, developing and practicing specific behaviors and cognitions. Although I would not go so far as to rule this kind of image making non-art (as some have done), I think it is fair to say that it represents only a narrow band of the full spectrum of artistic expression.

In Nature’s Mind (1992), Gazzaniga points out that psychoanalytic theory may have made sense when Freud began formulating his ideas about a hundred years ago, but it does not do so today in the light of current knowledge. He also suggests that one of the reasons psychoanalysis has persisted is because it offers satisfying explanations for seemingly inexplicable behavior – not because there is scientific support. Gazzaniga then holds up some cherished Freudian constructs for scrutiny. Chief among these is the Oedipal conflict.
