Social movements of the long 1960s and Freudianism?

Hello all: I recently came across a very interesting article by Anthony D. Kauders, "Drives in Dispute: The West German Student Movement, Psychoanalysis, and the Search for a New Emotional Order, 1967-1971," Central European History 44 (2011): 711-31. Kauders' point of departure was a series of conflicts between younger leftists and the Freudian establishment during the 1960s which highlight the ways that this generation of radicals reinterpreted the Freudian corpus to argue for a new balance between order and authority on the one hand and the open expression of the authentic passion of the "animalistic" side of human nature.
