Freud And the Legacy Of Moses (Cambridge Studies in Religion and
Critical Thought 4) -by- Richard J Bernstein -edited by- Wayne Proudfoot et al. ISBN 0521638771. Philosophy. Judaism. Freud's
last book, 'Moses and Monotheism', was published in 1939 during one of the
darkest periods in Jewish history; this scandalous and difficult book has often
been vilified and dismissed because Freud claims that Moses was not a Hebrew but
an Egyptian, and he also claims that the Jews murdered Moses in the wilderness;
Bernstein argues that a close reading of 'Moses and Monotheism' reveals an
underlying powerful coherence in which Freud seeks to specify the distinctive
character and contribution of the Jewish people; the legacy of the strict
ethical monotheism of Moses is the progress of spirituality (the advance of
intellectuality); it is this character that has enabled the Jewish people to
survive despite persecution and virulent antisemitism, and Freud proudly
identifies himself with this legacy of Moses; in his analysis of Freud's often
misunderstood book, Bernstein goes on to show how Freud expands and deepens our
understanding of a religious tradition by revealing its unconscious dynamics.

Structures Of The Jazz Age Mass Culture, Progressive Education, And Racial Disclosures In American Modernism -by-
Chip Rhodes. ISBN 1859842003. Philosophy. Rhodes charts the 1920s cultural landscape populated by critical intellectuals like H L Mencken and Irving
Babbitt, and by major imaginative writers like Dos Passos, Cather and Dreiser; looking beyond the mainstream, the author also considers more
marginal schools of thought including progressive educational philosophy, the critique of mass culture, and the cult of primitivism, exemplified in the less
canonised figures like Anzia Yezierska, Harry Leon Wilson and DuBose Heyward; he shows how these different strands were woven together in a way that helped to
sustain Republican rule and an expanding economy, until the entire edifice came tumbling down in the stock market crash of 1929.
