Prof. Jon Mills is a Canadian philosopher, psychoanalyst, and clinical psychologist. He has been an outspoken critic against the troubling turn psychological and psychoanalytic organisations have made when they adopted the radically illiberal identitarian positions of Critical Social Justice. Jaco and Jon discuss various problematic developments within prominent psychoanalytic organisations over the last few years, particularly the American Psychoanalytic Association and Division 39 of the American Psychological Association.
These developments include the Donald Moss article, ‘On Having Whiteness’, Lara Sheehi’s antisemitism, the Holmes Report and the lack of adequate leadership to prevent such extremism from festering. This discussion is psychoanalytically dense, so prepare for some psychobabble.
