interesting perspective on the illusion of religion from the king and creator of psycho-analysis. this is an extremely short read, and one that i will have to re-read again to get a firmer understanding of his analysis. his scientific tactic of breaking down the creation and dissemination of religious ideas over centuries, using psycho-analysis, is quite fascinating and frankly, hard to rationally argue. it really only leaves ones' 'faith' to believe in the absurdities of religious doctrine, or as he puts it, '[the church] maintains that religious doctrines are outside the jurisdiction of reason - are above reason. Their truth must be felt inwardly, and they need not be comprehended.' which begs the next statement that i thoroughly enjoy because it creates a nasty, yet accurate slippery slope, 'Am I to be obliged to believe in every absurdity? And if not, why this one in particular?' moreover, he discusses the formation of religion from both the achievement and shortcomings of civilization. and answers how the world would handle the non-existence of it, as a civilization. its nice to read a purely scientific analysis of religion. not opinion, but analysis using the same method he used to make modern psychology what it is today. but i guess this is a moot point when we as humans are not capable of understanding divine power and wisdom.

Ideas que han cambiado el mundo.

A lo largo de la historia, algunos libros han cambiado el mundo. Han transformado la manera en que nos vemos a nosotros mismos y a los demás. Han inspirado el debate, la discordia, la guerra y la revolución. Han iluminado, indignado, provocado y consolado. Han enriquecido vidas, y también las han destruido.

Taurus publica las obras de los grandes pensadores, pioneros, radicales y visionarios cuyas ideas sacudieron la civilización y nos impulsaron a ser quienes somos.

Este estudio de la religión de la mano del psicoanalista más célebre del siglo XX examina el papel que la fe puede desempeñar en la vida del hombre, lo que significa para nosotros y por qué, como especie, tendemos hacia ella.

Perhaps relevant in hi...
Perhaps relevant in his times, but utter BS today. Our life is, essentially, a dream. If you are pessimistic enough to call any religion a collective illusion or neurosis, then you should have the courage and intellectual honesty to call your entire life, religious or non religious, an illusion and a neurosis. One more intellectual to load on the "Ooops, I missed the point" wagon. On to the next one! Oh, nice to meet you, prof. Dawkins...

Freud brings up a numb...

Freud brings up a number of interesting arguments. Perhaps not everyone will agree, but I think this book has an interesting take on the mechanics of religious faith, and offers one possible explanation for its manifestation.

Freud, in most modern ...

Freud, in most modern opinions, oscillates wildly between being beautifully right and spectacularly wrong. This book contains some of his most piercing insights and acerbic wit.Freud analyzes the old dinosaur of religion as he saw it, finding it to serve as a type of cure for a childlike helplessness in the world. He delves briefly into his idea of a 'father complex', but this idea is well applied here - modern theorists have built off of his ideas here to an astonishing degree.He also re-examines the role of religion in modern life, saying that it is very appealing to those who are most downtrodden in society - again, a statement that history has gratified. However, Freud also says that having a society totally reliant on atheism would also be a fault, too.A profoundly interesting book, and one of the great ideas in history is here - one with which many still grapple.

But surely infantilism...

But surely infantilism is destined to be surmounted. Men cannot remain children for ever; they must in the end go out into 'hostile life'. We may call this 'education to reality. Need I confess to you that the whole purpose of my book is to point out the necessity for this forward step?This isn't exactly theory, but more a prose poem or maybe agitprop. Freud deftly employs a dialogue method aiming for some persuasive measure, though accepting that his words aren't likely to influence the unwilling. He does paraphrase his opponents well. While remaining a plea, the text is an eloquent one. His style is adroit and drenched in wit (see Freud's thoughts on Prohibition). There is much to be said about a sociology of the murderous: denizens who would overthrow the yoke of civilization at the first opportunity. Here's to austerity measures and prayer in schools.
