It short, it is about collecting vast amounts of information and only constructing hypotheses about them afterwards. It is difficult to imagine the quasi-monstrous quantity of data to be analysed, over twenty years, classed, sorted, and above all understood.

This memory of Jacob Freud's, which he tells his young son Sigmund, triggered off revenge fantasies in the latter. In Psychopathology of Everyday Life, Freud explains how he developed an identification with Hannibal, whose sole driving force was vengeance on Rome from conquering Carthage. In The Interpretation of Dreams, there is a slip in which [...]
