Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Freud, who described himself as a Godless Jew, may have been the most representative Jew of the 20th century. HIs family followed a typical path from the Pale of Settlement to a middle-class life in Vienna. Although Freud was to write that religion was an illusion, he associated with Jews all his life and Jewish ideas suffused his works.
