Minor edits[edit]

Hello, Hypoplectrus. I noticed that you marked several recent edits you made to Sigmund Freud, such as this one, as "minor." Please see WP:MINOR: "A check to the minor edit box signifies that only superficial differences exist between the current and previous versions. Examples include typographical corrections, formatting and presentational changes, and rearrangements of text without modification of its content. A minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute." The edits you made to the Freud article, which removed significant amounts of content, and which are now the subject of a dispute, were not minor, and you should not have marked them as such.

Freud page[edit]

Thanks for contacting me to discuss the issues you raise. I appreciate the points you make about Paul McHugh. However, I suspect we are in less agreement on other matters. In your message to me, you treat Freud's clinical findings as separate from the methodological failings of the analysts, whereas I would put many of these methodological failings squarely at Freud's door. I would also dispute the validity of many of his so-called discoveries, which not infrequently were his own imaginative constructions 'validated' by his interpretative and reconstructive techniques (e.g., Oedipus complex, castration complex). So we don't seem to have much common ground there. However, as with Polisher of Cobwebs, I'm happy to consider on the Freud Talk page any changes you propose.
