A Critical Account of Freud’s Understanding of Religion

- Sigmund Freud; Father of the psychoanalytic school of psychology, was not a friend to religious belief. Freud’s understanding of religion, to put it bluntly, was that of an illusion. That is to say, not necessarily false, but developed in response to the need to overcome the conflict between our sexual natures and the nature of civilisation.

For Freud’s position to be truly valid, we have to prove that the Oedipus complex is a fully universal sexual trauma, and that buried trauma can really manifest itself in the form of religion....   [tags: Psychology]

I will show how this objection challenges unification in two ways by using David Lewis’ example of the non-unified world....   [tags: theory of unification vs covering law model]

Here I want to look closely at a key concept in Fichte's mature writings: the concept of the Anstoss, a concept which Dan Breazeale has called "Fichte's original insight." Fichte introduces the Anstoss, or "check," to explain why the I posits the world as it does....   [tags: Jean-Paul Sartre Philosophy Existentialism]

Indeed, when reading the book the reader is perhaps most struck by Blaugdone’s excessive, nearly constant travel habits.

Freud and Nietzsche - an Account for the Role of Memory in Our Lives
