Interview with Mikkel Borch-Jacobsen about his book Freud’s Patients: A Book of Lives. Discusses the lives of the patients anonymised in the case studies on which Sigmund Freud based his theories. Describes how Freud falsified the data to fit his theories, kept incurable cases coming back week after week to keep the fees rolling in – and how the global industry of Freudian analysis resembles a religious cult more than a science.
