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.
