Kottayarikil, Cyriac: Sigmund Freud on Religion and Morality

Kottayarikil, Cyriac: Sigmund Freud on Religion and Morality

Kottayarikil, Cyriac:

Sigmund Freud on Religion and Morality:
a Challenge to Christianity

The author has made a very exact analysis of Freud's statements on religion and morality. He realizes how uncompromisingly the Great Atheist has fought against and thrown away everything that is compulsive and repressive. For Freud there was only one way to liberation: becoming aware of one's own servitude. Certainly, he also had personal, so to speak, psycho-analytical reasons for his negative attitude towards a prohibitive religion. The author always tries to remain a fair commentator and wants to bring out the fundamental ethical values in Freud. In so doing, he comes to the conclusion that the Christian Agape is not far removed from the therapeutic Eros of Freud. The important thing is that he arrives at this conclusion always through the dialogical method and presents Freud to the reader from a completely legitimate view-point for further critical considerations and appraisals.
