No big enlightening post for today - mostly just a day of catching up on miniscule (yet important) things around the office and in my academic life.
Stumbled across this article arguing that all of Freud's theories as to the working of the mind, notably the unconscious and the source of emotional reaction, are predicted and theorized in the Bhagavad Gita a long, long time before he picked up a pen.
The question: Does this validate or invalidate Freud? Could go either way. Also perhaps dovetails with some of the argumentative insights from the work of Sen on argument in Indian culture.
