LCA - Moses and Monotheism Close Reading - July - August

“It is not for nothing that Moses and Monotheism, like everything else Freud writes, is absolutely fascinating. If one is independent-minded, one can say that it makes absolutely no sense at all. We will speak about it again…”

Jacques Lacan, Seminar XVII


The series of essays that eventually coalesced into Moses and Monotheism are amongst the final writings of Sigmund Freud. He completed the manuscript in March 1939, it was published in August 1939, WWII was declared in September 1939, and he died later that month.


It is his most enigmatic work, little read and not often studied.


The LCA will read Moses and Monotheism closely over four 2020 winter sessions:
