The Disrupters
In partnership with CBC Radio’s Ideas, a five-part series that explores the roots of modern identity through the ideas of five people who flipped the table of conventional thought.

Freud and After
Saturday, August 10
Freud started a revolution with the idea that we have an internal emotional life and unconscious drives that shape us and our actions in profound ways. Much of Freud’s clinical practice is sidestepped today, but his basic principles survive – what’s the current state of self-knowledge, and what good has all this done us?

Todd Dufresne, professor of philosophy at Lakehead University and internationally acclaimed critic of Freud and psychoanalysis
David Goldbloom, professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto and Senior Medical Advisor at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health
Zindel Segal, distinguished professor of psychology in Mood Disorders at the University of Toronto and Senior Scientist at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health
