Jeffrey Masson is an international treasure, one of the most thoughtful people I have ever known.  He has enlightened me about many vastly important issues from Freud’s betrayal of children by denying the existence of child abuse, to the role of Psychiatry in Nazi Germany, on to the importance of animals for their own sake and in our lives.  For many years, his writing has focused on the lives of animals and the meaning of our relationships with them, and today’s show was supposed to focus on his new book, Lost Companions: Reflections on the Death of Pets; but we could not resist covering a fascinating range of topics including those I’ve mentioned above.  This is a very thoughtful and enlightening show, a rare experience that adds wonderment to our lives.
