Summary
Though Freud never overtly refers to the Mahābhārata, many of the Sanskrit epic's themes are illuminated by Freud's thought and, conversely, many incidents in the epic can be used to illustrate Freud's theories. In this work, Alf Hiltebeitel offers what he calls a 'pointillist introduction' to a new theory about the Mahābhārata based on Freud
