Here the author has sought to contribute a fresh approach to salient themes in the Freudian texts that could be regarded as the underpinnings of Freud s idiosyncratic attitude toward religious feeling and, ultimately, of his own problematic identification with Moses. Working with an impressive array of citations from Freuds papers, Ater argues that Freud s complex religious identification as well as his scientific outlook particularly as regards to the deepest strata of the unconscious, group psychology, and the genesis of religion share a single psychological structure."
