Alan Watts is the opposite of a pseud because he specifically identifies as nothing but a "spiritual entertainer". Regardless of the quality or accuracy of his discussions, he admits that he's full of shit, that it's all just a sort of mental game. He might be an idiot, but he's certainly not a pseud. Many much smarter "thinkers" are much bigger pseuds than Watts.

You know, Watts IS a Psued, but he's still correct. He's like a cocky nerd, flaunting his knowledge in that smooth, trained, practiced voice. If you're like me, you'll enjoy the following works and authors more.

He was an insufferable liberal in his politics, the embodiment of squeamish middle class do-gooding. I won't call the man stupid or anything, he clearly wasn't, but Wittgenstein was right about Russell's books being worthless outside of his contributions to logic.

I am reading The Last Superstition now and Feser constantly tries to make jabs at liberals, usually bordering between cringe and ridiculous. My favorite so far is comparing sorting your rubish to different kinds of trashcans for recyclement to religious rituals. He also makes "politically correct pronoun" jokes but I will spare you those.

I like Alan Watts but I believe he was a pseud for reasons people never talk about: he was an anglican priest for decades, yet he never got anything on christianity right. Then again, it may have to do with him being a former anglican and all.

Jung acknowledges that you can only partially base psychology on science because people are not mechanical enough to treat wholly scientifically. Anyone that doesn't understand that is memeing.

I'd say both, he specifically states that people are too complicated and far too subjective to create algorithmic diagnoses with our current understanding and therefore the treatment of any given person can alter radically. One of the reasons that people are so complicated is i suppose a form of dualism, that you can physically injure yourself with mental ailments and vice versa.
