Freud on Gods and Religion
For any of you that might be interested in what Freud had to say about the arrival of gods and religion, he wrote a book entitled "Totem and Taboo" There are only a few terms he uses in te book that you might be unfamiliar with, but which can be looked up on the Net. It's a fascinating book, if you have an interest in Freud as well. Unrelated to that book, but I think it was the most interesting book I read while I was in college was Carl Jung's autobiography entitled "Memories, Dreams, and Reflections". It's a quick read, and although I'm no Jungian, I enjoyed reading it immensely, and recommend it as another fascinating (and non-technical) book.
