From and

From Freudian slips to videogames to The Sopranos, Kurt Andersen and Jonathan Lear look at how Sigmund Freud and his theories pervade our culture. We’ll experience a new videogame called Psychonauts, which sends players into the minds of patients at an insane asylum. The game’s creator, Tim Shafer, is a legend in the gaming world, but he seems to have a fixation on bunnies. And we’ll imagine a meeting that was planned but never took place between Dr. Freud and movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn.
