We know that Freud insisted on sex as the key to neurosis. This led him to some grotesque results such as telling a psychotic patient to divorce his wife, leave his children and re-marry because sexual satisfaction would cure him.
Guess what. It didn't. The first wife died in poverty and the second realtionship foundered, the man, broke down.
All right. It was a new "science" and Freud was not only the founder but the defender--surely a difficult position. Eventually, you would think, theory would develpop, become less rigid. The opposite happened. Freud mercilessly attacked anyone who deviated in the slightest, calling them psychotic--he even referred to Stekel as a pig!--until just as in a cult, he had created a closed society of the faithful. It included a committee to guard the party line and root out deviants. This was a real pity not only for the patients and disciples but because it set back the development of psychoanalysis itself.
