Discussion about SF by Pushpanjali

Hi All,
This is the first part of body of critical review.

Freud was born on May 6, 1856. He grew up in an unusual , complicated Jewish family. Freud's father, Jacob, married his mother Amalia, when she was a teenager and he was forty years old. For the first two and half years of his life, a nursemaid took care of Freud. She instilled in him, a faith toward God Almighty. As he lost his younger brother, he spent most of his early years in the care of his nanny. She left him suddenly because of being accused of stealing and it invoked a feeling of hostility toward church in young Freud.
At home, Frued's father used to read Bible in Hebrew but Freud never learned Hebrew. His father struggled a lot to make a living for his family. During his adoloscent years, he wrote many letters to a friend named Eduard Silberstein. Freud studied under the philosopher Franz Brentano, when he entered the University of Vienna. Brentano influenced young Freud by demostrating the existence of God. Due to this, Freud wrote in one of his letters that " of all things seems to demand the existence of God......."
Another philosopher, whom Freud admired was Ludwig Feuerbach. He told that religion is for the fulfillment of human need. Freud's athiesm might have further influenced by the cultural environment of Europe and specific environment of medical school. Freud worked with Brucke, who also took a strong stand against the spiritual worldview.
To his dismay,Freud had to wait for the professorship for seventeen years because of the prejudice against jews. Because of his experience with anti-Semitism, which his father also experienced with humiliation, he referred to religion as "the enemy". In 1982, he became engaged to Martha Bernays, who was also a Jewish. On Easter 1886,he opened aprivate practice in neuropathology. After that he got married to Martha. The death of his father, a decade later, made a profound impact on Freud. Due to which, he formulated his theory of the Oedipus complex. According to the theory, children experience psychosexual development during which they develop affection for the parent of the opposite sex and rivalry toward the parent of the same sex. He told that early childhood relationships with parents contribute to psychological health of a person later in life. He concerned Oedipus complex, as the neucleus of every case of neurosis.


Introduction of Critical Review (Hanouf)

Hi team members, I am posting the introduction part please combine it with your work, Hanouf Introduction

A review and critique of Chapter 1, The Question og God ,by Dr. Armand M. Nicholi, JR.

Sigismund Freud was born to a Jewish family. Freud grew up an unusual, complicated family as his mom was much younger than his dad, he was taken care of by a nanny, and he suffered discrimination and anti-Semitism as he was in Vienna during the Nazi invasion. Clive Staple. Lewis was born to a middle-class household in Belfast. Lewis has turned bitter toward religion when his prayers to prevent his mom’s death were ineffective. His hate towards God increased when he was sent to boarding school where religious practices were associated with harsh conditions. A private atheist tutor has taught Lewis and might have influenced his belief in God. Lewis was sent to war and lost his close friend, which added to his bitterness towards God. Eventually, Lewis rejected atheism and became a believer. The research question that this review focuses on is whether harsh childhood circumstances shape people’s behavior including their belief in God. Another interesting point this review focuses on is differences between science and religion, and whether scientific method can explain the existence of God.

Critical review of the Lives of Sigmund Freud and C.S. Lewis

Hi, This is Sirinee

Hope you guys had a good weekend and happy haloween day :)

This is my conclusion part for critical review, please feel free to suggest. Thank you

Armand connects two life stories; Freud and Lewis by concentrate on the similarity of the background experience in the childhood that forms and impacts with their adult perspective, especially, about the believing in god. Both of them used to be atheism, but they eventually change their mind to become the faith. The author emphasizes on the early losses, the terrible relationship with their father and induced by reading as the main factors influent to their belief. However, some principle experiences are neglect. Lewis has the war experiences, which might be a large influence for switching his belief by the loss of his close friend in the war. He might be afraid of dead and starts to believe in god. Freud creates the Oedipus theory, which might convert his feeling toward his father from the negative to positive and lead to the agreement on his father’s word. Therefore, Armand should concern about the disconnection factors between both of them and also provide more strongly evidences that the linkages are truly major influence to their belief.

Wang.Kun Yuan's review

I am sorry.there maybe some wrong during our mail systerms.I failed to send you my part.
So I post it here.Hope it helps

When Freud assumed that the departure of his nursemaid, who always took him to church when he was a little boy, was the source of his bad feeling against the Catholic, this article pointed out it was not that case and there should be some real reasons. In fact, Freud grew up in a traditional Jew family and his father really wanted his son to accept the spirit of God, so Freq naturally has the similar worldview as with father at the beginning. However, the appearance of the professor Franze Brentano, who showed a great doubt on the pope, had a great effect on the Freud and let him to start to suspect the thought of theist. And then, the medical education experience and the anti-Semitism environment gradually changed his worldview. After his father death, which was a big shock on him but also stimulated his self-analysis, he created the Oedipus Theory and totally became an atheism. At last, the article concluded the background of Freud showed the family relationship and the personal experience was the key factor that determined ones belief.


Evaluation of CSL issue conclusion to evaluation of SF issue

hello guys! How is your weekend? Must be very busy! Whatever we should remember we have to hand in our homework next Tuesday. I want to share with you about it first. To be honest I think this article is difficult I do not understand completely even if I read it couple of times. Would you like to tell me your opinion about it? That will be marvalous!
PS to Wang(967) Liu(586) and Liu(640), when will we combine our writing?
Thank you very much!
Have fun!

Comparing Freud, C.S.Lewis’ life, amazingly similar, was full with misfortune such as losing relations, dark childhood experiences and bad relationship with their fathers. Specifically, their original beliefs were challenged and changed. However although Freud and Lewis were or once were an atheist they eventually made different decision toward their beliefs. The pessimistic personality of Lewis finally pushed him to lose his belief, atheism, again and chose to avoid and escape from the reality. On contrary Freud persisted to be an atheist and became increasingly steady as he devoted into his research, the psycho analytics. Series of theories to interpret his feelings and confusions drove Freud from God and also from Lewis even if he was born in a family with rich spiritual heritage no matter how strong the early relationships with parents influent his adult belief.

From Minpyo...

How's it going every mate?
It is Friday night. You might have great things to do!

By the way, this is my critical review of the article we read on Thursday class. I attach this for my discussion group members. Have a great weekend!

Critical review by Minpyo Kim

According to Dr. Armand, C. S. Lewis unfortunately experienced miserable childhood which would be considerably influential in his future mind just like the life of Freud by suffering from mother’s death and unsatisfactory boarding school. In addition, the author specifically points out their fathers were a negative factor to both Freud and Lewis. At the first glance, this opinion seems to be somewhat appearing; however, the author commits a fallacy of over-generalization in the article. Differently from Freud’s father, Lewis’ father was a pretty much nice patriarch as well as a normal husband. Moreover, Lewis’s atheism is more reasonably considered as being encouraged by educators, such as Miss Cowie and Kirkpatrick dissimilarly from Freud’s atheism. Therefore, Dr. Armand should have dealt with difference of motivation of their atheism more carefully to support his statement more validly.
