Church pamphlets of the 1920s and 1930s disparaged the psychoanalysis of Sigmund Freud as pansexualism . It is based on the fact that Freud made unconscious sexual driving forces, or their suppression, responsible for the conspicuous behavior of his patients. In doing so, Freud supported the moral brutality of man, he founded pagan "cults of sexual deification". The assessment fails to recognize that Freud's theory not included sexualizing elements, but rather just the awareness and control of such shoots of it (sexuality, aggression) by the culturally tamed I explained the goal of treatment.
The discussion about the content and value of modern psychoanalysis has broken away from such simplistic judgments. Today's authors still sometimes take up the term in the context of general culture and civilization critical texts to express that, in their opinion, sexual topics and content have become omnipresent.
