> I think too much analysis of anything takes all the fun out of it..

lol. sometimes it can seem that way.
wittgenstein once said that he didn't write so as to spare other people the trouble of thinking, rather to stimulate them to thoughts of their own.

i think that that is the best way to read everything...

that is what makes it interesting to me rather than boring... i always look to apply it to new problems or to modify it so i find it more plausible or whatever...

(you can't change the facts but you can challenge the interpretation of the facts)

>now I don't like to read about transference also.

because it takes the 'magic' out of it?
sometimes... that can help one move beyond it...
recognising it... can lead to one seeing it for what it is and moving beyond it... but there is a certain comfort in just indulging the feelings i suppose...

;-)

> Neither do I like psychology:-(
> I used to be so passionate about it.

heh heh. maybe... you just mean something different by 'psychology'.

the term came from...

psyche.
soul. mind. spirit.
logy.
i think that is 'study of'
comes from logos
reason

the rational investigation of the soul

but it got operationalised into the empirical (observation focused) study of behaviour

in the interests of making it scientific rather than speculative...
