Moses and Monotheism

any parallels, consanguinity ?


Moses in bulrushes

     

Delving into Sigmund's last book, I am fascinated to read what he has to say. It strongly reminds me of a conversation I had with a woman concerning her daughter, who had qualified as a psychotherapist, and was utterly consumed by her calling. Her mother remarked to me: "it seems that psychotherapy has become a subsitute for religion." It also recalls a remark by one of my few surviving friends, a doctor, who told me that "Freud never cured anybody of anything --- he was not a scientist, but a writer of imaginative literature". This doctor, who never struck me as especially intellectually gifted, nevertheless impressed me with his considered opinion that polytheism was much superior to monotheism, and greatly to be preferred..

What we have here, in Moses and Monotheism, 1939, a most intriguing presentation of the last speculative musings of Sigmund Freud, is a masterly debunking of the Moses myth and the Jesus myth; a repudiation of the religions of much of the world, and their substitution by Sigmund's invention, namely psychotherapeutic psychology. The incompatible Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, is replaced by the Id, the Ego, and the Superego, and the Oedipus Complex. The mumbo-jumbo of the past is replaced by the mumbo-jumbo of the present. Difficult for the rationally-minded to accept either, except as entertainment, or as reading for a rainy day.


When the Sword glitters ore the Judges head,
And fear has Coward Churchmen silenced
Then is the Poets time, 'tis then he drawes
And single fights forsaken Vertues cause.
He, when the wheel of Empire whirleth back,
And though the World's disjointed Axel crack,
Sings still of ancient Rights and better Times
Seeks wretched good, arraigns successful Crimes.
