Hatte Freud doch reccht?

In high school they made us read "The Question of God" by Dr. Armand Nicholi and it has peaked my interest in the sadistic old fool ever since. I have been a fan of C.S. Lewis since before I could even read, and Psychology is one of my main loves - so it seems natural that this book would be high on my list with or without my 'great' MK school curriculum. As the author him self had studied both these men for years, and has even taught a course comparing them (how I wish I was a student at Harvard for that) I think we can safely assume that his unbiased account is a worthy read. The Question of God may be the best book about belief and nonbelief ever written - it does not push towards which answer is correct. Instead, it uses two of history's most articulate spokesmen to present arguments on both sides. In the end, readers must join Nicholi's hundreds of former students in deciding for themselves which path to follow.

‘Frau Freud’ by Carol Ann Duffy

Ladies, for argument’s sake, let us say
that I’ve seen my fair share of ding-a-ling, member and jock, of todger and nudger and percy and cock, of tackle, of three-for-a-bob, of willy and winky; in fact,
you could say, I’m as au fait with Hunt-the-Salami
as Ms. M. Lewinsky - equally sick up to here
with the beef bayonet, the pork sword, the saveloy,
love-muscle, night-crawler, dong, the dick, prick,
dipstick and wick, the rammer, the slammer, the rupert,
the shlong. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve no axe to grind
with the snake in the trousers, the wife’s best friend,
the weapon, the python - I suppose what I mean is,
ladies, dear ladies, the average penis - not pretty…
the squint of its envious solitary eye…one’s feeling of pity....
