Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Using an impressive array of material from literature, archaeology and social theory, Edward Said explores the profound implications of Freud’s Moses and Monotheism for Middle-East politics today. The resulting book reveals Said’s abiding interest in Freud’s work and its important influence on his own.

He proposes that Freud’s assumption that Moses was an Egyptian undermines any simple ascription of a pure identity, and further that identity itself cannot be thought or worked through without the recognition of the limits inherent in it. Said suggests that such an unresolved, nuanced sense of identity might, if embodied in political reality, have formed, or might still form, the basis for a new understanding between Jews and Palestinians. Instead, Israel’s relentless march towards an exclusively Jewish state denies any sense of a more complex, inclusive past.

Synopsis:

Banned by the Freud Institute in Vienna, this controversial lecture became Edward Said's final book.

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

Freud and the Non-European was written as a lecture in response to an invitation from the Freud Institute in Vienna. Under pressure from local Zionists, the institute publicly withdrew its invitation. The Freud Museum in London stepped in and Edward Said delivered the postponed lecture in December 2001. Using an impressive array of material from literature, archaeology and social theory, and demonstrating an abiding interest in Freud's work and its influence on his own, Edward Said explores the profound implications in Moses and Monotheism for Middle-East politics today.
