Feuerbach and the Interpretation of Religion available in Paperback
Ludwig Feuerbach is best known as the author of a sensational criticism of Christianity in the mid-nineteenth century. Although some scholars regard this criticism of Christianity as important in its own right, most view it pertinent because of its anticipation of the views of Nietzsche, Marx, and Freud. Harvey's long-awaited book argues that this is an inadequate interpretation of Feuerbach's significance. By exploring works of Feuerbach which have been virtually ignored, he convincingly demonstrates their contemporary relevance.
