psychoanalysis is dead

I was thinking about the last post and how Nietzsche's "God is dead" is meant in the opposite way. Nietzsche meant that no longer can the highest minds believe in God and make knowledge serve him as a basic postulate. However, "the rabble" have continued to believe in God or flatter themselves for being agnostic and "educated". Psychoanalysis is dead means that it is dead to the people but that the highest minds see it as a challenge, a temptation, as something heroic.
