Freud basically wanted to contend that behind every consious psychological suffering, there was a subconsious issue related to a person's childhood, and that issue is most likely correlated with sexuality or sex.
As much as people knock on Freud, a lot can be traced back to his theroy. His theory is well known and "used" in some context daily.
correlated but not predictive of a behavior
Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
His intentions? To understand human behavior, what else?
Take the science out of Freud and he becomes a genuinely interesting observer of human life. All those idiotic meta theories were his undoing.
