When Hitler invaded Vienna in the winter of 1938, Sigmund Freud, old and desperately ill, was among the citys 175,000 Jews dreading Nazi occupation. Mark Edmundson traces Hitler and Freud's oddly converging lives, then zeroes in on the last two years of Freud's life. Staring down certain death, Freud, in typical fashion, does not enjoy his fame but instead writes his most provocative book yet, "Moses and Monotheism", in which he debunks all monotheistic religions and questions the legacy of the great Jewish leader, Moses. Edmundson probes Freud's ideas about secular death, and also about the rise of fascism and fundamentalism, and finally grapples with the demise of psychoanalysis after Freud's death, when religious fundamentalism is once again shaping world events.
