Disciplining on Freud on Religion aims at evaluating the impact of Freud's understanding and interpretation of religion as it has impacted contemporary scholarship within several humanistic and social scientific disciplines, including religious studies, Jewish studies, philosophy, and the natural and social sciences. This edited collection should appeal to a wide range of scholars, for upper level undergraduate and graduate classes and those training in psychoanalysis.
