Formatted abstract
Stephan Atzert's probing of the question of the influence of Schopenhauer on Freud, which follows Weller's article in this section, reveals a quite different use of psychology. Following the intertextual links between Schopenhauer and Freud in Die Zukunft einer Illusion on the question of the social value of religious illusions, Atzert finds certain differences between Schopenhauer and Freud just as noteworthy as the manifest similarities. Indeed, as he suggests, Freud's identification with Schopenhauer on the question of the future of religious illusions is so profound that differences emerge for reasons as much to do with "Freuds Gestaltung seines Selbstbildes" as with any theoretically coherent position Freud was able to assume. As Atzert maintains, Freud's pessimism might well have arisen from unrelenting skepticism toward intuition in general, and, in the same way, a reluctance to be guided by Schopenhauer's intuitive conception of will in particular.
