The future of an illusion / Sigmund Freud ; translated and edited by James Strachey ; with a biographical introduction by Peter Gay.

This is Freud's scientific analysis of religion. Religion, along with government and social, moral and ethical codes, or, civilization act as removing man from his true instinctual and destructive nature into a civil society. Religion is a necessary illusion derived from men's wishes.
