Moses and Monotheism: What Did Freud Think about Judaism

This session will look at Sigmund Freud's most remarkable book--one that reads like a brilliant suspense novel! Freud's last book was written at least two times, first as an old man in Austria weary of the rise of Nazism in Europe and then as a refugee in London. It is a book by an adamant secularist, who in that dire time for the Jewish people looked unflinchingly and often transgressively at its origins, with wisdom and almost love. We will learn about the history of this great work and seek to understand Freud's final analysis of Judaism.
