Sigmund Freud's Christian Unconscious
This fascinating book casts a searching eye on Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), the founder of psychoanalysis, who is well known for his critique of religion. By closely studying Freud's life and making extensive use of his correspondence and writings, Paul Vitz points out the pervasive yet little-recognized influence of Christianity on Freud and shows convincingly how Freud's antireligious beliefs and theories arose out of his own unconscious needs and traumatic childhood experiences.
