Teaching Freud

Jonte-Pace, Diane, ed.

Description

As one of the first theorists to explore the unconscious fantasies, fears, and desires underlying religious ideas and practices, Freud can be considered one of the grandparents of the field of religious studies. Yet his legacy is deeply contested. How can Freud be taught in a climate of critique and controversy? The fourteen contributors to this volume, all recognized scholars of religion and psychoanalysis, describe how they address Freud’s contested legacy; they “teach the debates.” They describe their courses on Freud and religion, their innovative pedagogical practices, and the creative ways they work with resistance.
