In this text, Freud explicates his perspective of religion's origins, development, psychology, and its possible future. Freud viewed modern religious dogma as primarily delusive and a projection of human psychology. He saw Western religious ideas as "fulfillments of the oldest, strongest, and most urgent wishes of mankind."
