About the Authors
  • This important new title by Richard J. Bernstein presents a detailed examination of Freud's last book, Moses and Monotheism. Bernstein argues convincingly that this frequently vilified and dismissed book is one of Freud's most important works. It is in Moses and Monotheism that Freud answers the question that obsessed him: what is the essence of the Jewish people? Bernstein goes on to show how Freud developed a new interpretation of the concept of a religious tradition--an interpretation that is applicable to both Judaism and Christianity.

    • The most recent book by the eminent philosopher, Richard J. Bernstein
    • A strong defence of Freud's attempt to characterise the essential features of the Jewish people
    • Engages with recent high profile books on Freud by Yerushalmi and Derrida
