Mark Edmundson talked about his book The Death of Sigmund Freud: The Legacy of His Last Days, published by Bloomsbury USA. He chronicles the final years of the life of Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), which included his escape from Vienna as Hitler’s army approached, and the publication in 1939 of his final book, Moses and Monotheism. Mr. Edmundson reports that Freud became focused on the occurrence of fundamentalism and fascism in religion and politics and argues that Freud developed profound insights into the rise of a totalitarian, paternalistic leader like Hitler. Mr. Edmundson responded to questions from members of the audience. close
