Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

Freud and Moses. The Long Journey Home: By Emanuel Rice, M.D. Albany NY: State University of New York Press, 1990. 266 pp.

Review by:
Howard H. Schlossman

Here one begins a fascinating analysis of Freud's odyssey away from his Jewish roots into the culture of the Gentiles and his "long journey home." Rice has given us more than another biography of Freud. The issue of how far one grows away from childhood and the cultural atmosphere of the first home is presented for the reader. How frequently it occurs that an individual returns to the ethnicity and, often, the religion of childhood in the final years! Freud, an avowed atheist, returned to Jewish interests, though not to Jewish religion, in his last decade. Moses and Monotheism was his last great work. He could not die until it was completed.

Rice, in the sound manner of psychohistory, carefully examines the familial and cultural influences around Freud, as well as his letters, professional writings, slips of the tongue and pen—all the material that might be studied for some understanding of Freud's mind.
