    Hi Elizabeth!.. there is a VERY interesting work on this “oceanic” piece in Bela Grumberger’s “Narcissism”… He is an extraordinary Freudian psychoanalyst that died not that long ago… Wrote in French.

      How interesting … Thanks so much for letting me know Upchara…It is so nice to hear from you!!!

      When you get time, I would love to know more about what was said in Grumberger’s piece on narcissism. I will try to find the book also…

    Hey would you be so kind as to link the original letter from which this quote was taken from:
    “Your analysis of religions is fair. But I would have liked to see you analyze spontaneous religious feeling or, more exactly, religious sensation…”

    I had assumed that Freud never ventured into this territory at all.

      Yes, that’s what I love about this particular part of his work. He was not as narrow-minded as many of us have assumed. In fact, he was quite open to what his friend was talking about…
