    Never disappointed at this meetup, a great little group of people I enjoy discussing and learning philosophy with.

    I should add this became relevant to me particularly in light of the discussion in the first chapter, which Freud engages in in answer to his friend's perspective on the psychic forces at play in embracing religion.

    While reading these two chapters I did wonder about Freud's at times limited view of the mother and how Klein, Winnicott and the other object relations theorists would add to this discussion. In reference to this, I came across an interesting article comparing Melanie Klein's perspective to Freud's vis a vis the ideas explored in Civilization and its Discontents. Its perhaps a bit off track but I find it interesting to put it all in context. http://www.melanie-klein-trust.org.uk/domains/melanie-klein-trust.org.uk/local/media/downloads/Edna_OShaughnessy___Reparation___Prague_2013.pdf

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
