Freudian psychology has been fundamentally undermined long ago. Why is
this particular history of it important?
My "orientation" towards Eliot or anyone else has never been influenced
by psychoanalysis, or any other theory of mystical entities such as "The
Unconscious." Of course psychoanalysis is also a historical fact, like
neoclassical economics, phrenology, and other mythologies of the 19th
and 20th centuries.
