Example text

You would then be able to answer the ‘why’ question by pointing out that Freud was trying to reinterpret religious ideas as a psycho-social phenomenon which accords with his own theory of personality, rather than as a metaphysical phenomenon; that what he means is that these ‘wishes of mankind’ must therefore be taken seriously even though they are ‘illusions’ which could gradually be stripped away by some kind of social psychotherapy; and that in some respects he is right if we accept the boundaries he himself places on the meaning of ‘religious ideas’.

There are few less inspiring beginnings to an essay than ‘Let us first define our terms’, particularly if that definition is taken from a standard dictionary.
