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 as pertinent because of its anticipation of the views of Nietzsche, Marx, and Freud. Harvey's book argues that this is an inadequate interpretation of Feuerbach's significance. By exploring works of Feuerbach that have been virtually ignored, he convincingly demonstrates their contemporary relevance. A much-anticipated revisionist work on Feuerbach by a giant figure in American religious studies The inaugural book in an important new series Puts an entirely new perspective on Feuerbach's significance by exploring works by him which have been hitherto overlookedContentsAcknowledgementsNote on the text and abbreviations; Introduction1.
