"Every so often I teach a third year undergraduate course called “Philosophy & Psychoanalytic Theory.” This Fall the course began with the case of “Anna O.” and ended with the so-called ‘memory wars’ of the 1980s and 1990s. In between we focused on my own specialty, ‘the late Freud’, beginning with Freud’s Beyond the Pleasure Principle (1920) and ending with Civilization and Its Discontents (1930). For one short assignment I asked students to answer the question: to what extent can one find optimism in Freud’s final invocation of Eros at the end of Civilization and Its Discontents?. A fourth year Philosophy major from Toronto, Michael Poirier, wrote the best essay. Mr Poirier is a Lakehead University varsity athlete, playing the forward position as one of the school’s veteran basketball players. Next year he hopes to attend Law School. He is also a winner of the department’s 2017-2018 award for academic achievement" - Todd Dufresne
