In a forceful reaction to those evaluations, Rachel Blass demonstrates that whereas Freud and his fans have up to now did not supply enough justification for his dream concept, such justification may well now be came upon via another and bonafide but missed path, person who establishes either scientifically and philosophically the connection among the self of the dreamer and that of the wakeful person. the consequences of this argument are either useful and theoretical: via delivering sorely absent medical and philosophical grounding to the very foundations of dream interpretation, the e-book clarifies and broadens the probabilities of dream interpretation in the scientific environment, and breaks new floor within the box of psychoanalytic epistemology and the philosophy of the human sciences."

By Sigmund Freud
Qual o futuro da humanidade? Este é o ponto de partida de “O futuro de uma ilusão”, ensaio escrito por Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) em 1927, em pleno e agitado período entreguerras. Se a cultura humana repousa precariamente sobre a repressão de impulsos antissociais naturais a todos, a religião é a valuable força a controlar estes impulsos, o que nos leva à outra pergunta: qual a origem psicológica da necessidade do sentimento religioso no indivíduo? O que, em cada pessoa, a torna propensa a crer num sistema irracional, indemonstrável e de recusa à realidade? Freud demonstra que a religião (“a neurose obsessiva common da humanidade”) depende de sentimentos infantis não resolvidos e afirma ser ela, bem como seus dogmas, a culpada pela atrofia intelectual da maior parte dos seres humanos. Para Freud, a fim de o homem se organizar razoável e saudavelmente sobre a Terra, livre de ilusões, urge uma mudança radical nas formas de educação – que ele defende magistralmente neste texto breve mas impactante, tanto hoje quanto na época de sua publicação.
