Another scholar - Joel Whitebook, assistant professor of medical psychology at Columbia University - also put it aptly in another comment on the dispute between Curtis and the Castoriadis family (included in the same Chronicle article):
But all the conflict and complications do not come as a surprise, he says: "As an analyst, I've observed it over and over again, every time I've seen a death in a family.

Freud talked about what he called a fundamental emotional tie.He thought that such diverse phenomena as group formation (for example, in the Army or a church), love relations, a hypnotist's influence over his subject, and, of course, transference were all based on it.But he wasn't very detailed about the nature of that tie.Being a psychologist of the "father complex," to the extent he discussed it, Freud tended to explain that tie in terms of the young child's relation to his or her father.Since Freud's death, however, we have learned much more about the early mother-child relationship--indeed, you can say most of the major discoveries in psychoanalysis over the past 50 years have been made in this area.Today we would tend to understand the nature of that fundamental emotional tie in terms of that relationship.
This brings us back to the question of what it means for psychoanalysis or psychotherapy to be transplanted from a basically Jewish context to an Italian setting.When Freud discussed religion, he primarily referred to Judaism, "the religion of the fathers."And when he talked about Catholicism, he emphasized the fact that, with the Madonna, it had reintroduced the importance of the mother, something the ancient patriarchal Hebrews had purged from earlier mother-centered religions.
