Reading Freud : psychology, neurosis, and religion

dc.contributor.authorGay, Volney Patrick
dc.description.abstractThe primary goal of this short book is to interrogate systematically Freud's major essays on religion. To do that well requires that we know what he is talking about when he compares religious rituals, for example, to obsessional actions. And to understand those kinds of comparisons we must understand his general theory of personality and character.
