In this lecture, Jacque Fresco deals with the function of psychology and the failures of psychiatry to treat psychological problems. He differentiates between client-centered therapy and behavioral engineering. Fresco analyzes the tradeoffs between the opposing lifestyles of self-serving egoism vs. what he calls “functional selfishness” (working in service of society) and their relation to mental health and public health. Fresco also comments upon Wayne Dyer’s self-help books, Ayn Rand’s objectivism, B.F. Skinner’s Walden Two, and Mark Twain’s Letters from Earth.
