“Jesus was the first psychoanalyst. The most brilliant psychoanalyst of all time. The whole theory of projection is right there.  Why do you complain about a mote in your neighbor’s eye when there’s a beam in your eye, he says. So much of psychoanalytic insight is there in the New Testament, especially in the words of Jesus and in St. Paul. So I became increasingly struck by these parallels.”

In this episode, I speak to Toronto-based psychoanalyst Donald Carveth. We discuss how Don converted from Jung to Freud, his writing on the importance of differentiating conscience from the superego, and what we can learn from Jesus and the bible about psychoanalysis.
