ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses a book by Palestinian academic and intellectual Edward Said. The book examines the impact of Sigmund Freud, the inventor of psychoanalysis, on the non-European. Said's interpretation of Freud results in an erroneous interpretation of the meaning of being a Jew, according to the author. The author is critical of Said's conjecture and states that it amounts to an act of "intellectual violence."
