I don't pretend to be an expert on this, but isn't the basis of his 
conclusions - the analysis of dreams, and such - still respected?  I'm not 
saying that his conclusions are necessarily still in vogue, but his premises 
I think still hold some weight.  Not a physchologist, but somewhat 
interested in it.

They explain different aspects, why even compare them?  Both seem important 
enough.  It's like asking "Who's explained more about the universe, physics 
majors or english majors?"  It's not a contest...  In terms of "The Seeker", 
I feel pretty certain Pete's talking about philosophical (not necessarily 
spiritual) understanding, not the minutia of quantum physics.  The two 
fields answer completely different questions: "How?" and "Why?".
