Freud, The Future of an Illusion [please read the whole thing: it is short].
write an exposition of Freud’s atheism. This is not an argumentative essay, but an exploratory and explanatory essay. No personal responses or statement. Explain the authors perspective and reason. Again, do not right your bias opinions, ideas, or anything. Just focus on the writing please. Stick close to the text. Even go paragraph by paragraph if you have to. You can get Freud right. He thinks civilization is necessary to constrain the individual. He thinks religion has been necessary to civilization (a necessary illusion), but no longer a necessary illusion. Hammer all of this out in simple prose.
