Graeme Marshall 1 The problems Freud poses for philosophy It is commonly believed, even by philosophers, that philosophy has never recovered from Freud. The strictures of philosophers of science aside, one reason is that the clinical data encountered by Freud and those who followed him appear to demand a theory of mental functioning that makes it both intentional and involuntary. It is mediated by belief and desire and so is rational enough to be intentional but it often appears to be not under our conscious control and so it seems involuntary.

This has long been recognized by many, Freud himself included. 2 Causes are not meaning-related to their effects: prolonged lack of rain does not mean the financial ruin it may cause, though it does mean drought. And there is the related apparent conflict between Freud’s mechanistic and anthropological accounts of psychological phenomena, his metapsychology and his clinical theory.
