Product Description

Review

'Freud may well have taken issue with Richard Dawkin's fundamentalist brand of atheism, but Hewitt shows the genuine contribution that Freud's approach to religion has in regard of contemporary science. 'Freud on Religion' is essential reading for all those exploring Freud s treatments of religion and its intersection with contemporary science.' --Marcus Pound, Durham University

'After decades of the so-called 'Freud Wars,' a book occasionally appears that gives one hope that we are entering a new, more balanced phase of psychoanalytic thinking about religion. 'Freud on Religion' provides a clear introduction to basic psychoanalytic themes and treats striking subjects that earlier theorists would not touch, all the while maintaining that mature balance that comes with the rational eye of the seasoned scholar and the intuitive ear of the experienced analyst working together. The result is a joy to read.' --Jeffrey J. Kripal, Rice University
