Review: The Future of an Illusion (The Standard Edition) (Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud)

User Review  - Hadrian - Goodreads

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 ... Read full review

Review: The Future of an Illusion (The Standard Edition) (Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud)

User Review  - JB Shearman - Goodreads

I can't say I'm a fan of his writing style against the "opposition" in this book. He gives some very weak arguments that he imagines the opposition will claim against him and proceeds to break them ... Read full review

Review: The Future of an Illusion (The Standard Edition) (Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud)

User Review  - Gordon Howard - Goodreads

A very interesting book. Too much father-figure mumbo jumbo at the beginning, but then it gets interesting, as Freud and one of the most effective "straw men" in history engage in an argument about ... Read full review

Review: The Future of an Illusion (The Standard Edition) (Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud)

User Review  - Adam Lewis - Goodreads

Some of Freud's ideas are quaint and some of them are just plain wrong but many of them are getting at the root truth of things. His analysis of religion in this book is along the right trajectory even if it does ultimately miss the bull's eye. That is why he is certainly worth reading. Read full review

Review: The Future of an Illusion (The Standard Edition) (Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud)

User Review  - Catherine Woodman - Goodreads

I do not like this as much as some. I first read this in a college course, and found his body of work to be eye opening and thought provoking--although not all that easy to read--I would never have guessed that I would go on to be a psychiatrist, but he rocked my world Read full review

User Review  - Amanda - Goodreads

I don't think I've ever read a book by someone who likes to hear themselves talk as much as Sigmund Freud. That being said, I agree with some of his ideas, think others are crap, and think most of it is pretty obvious to the modern scholar. Interesting read though. Read full review
