In this long awaited book, the first of an important new series, Van A. Harvey claims that this is a limited and inadequate view of Feuerbach's work, especially of his critique of religion. The author argues that Feuerbach's philosophical development led him to a much more complex an interesting theory of religion, which he expounded in works which have been virtually ignored hitherto.

"If this series measures up to its first volume, it will be a distinguished series indeed...a summary cannot do justice to the richness and subtlety of Harvey's analysis and interpretation of Feuerbach..." Owen C. Thomas, Anglican Theological Review "Van Harvey's study of Feuerbach offers one of the most extensive re-evaluations of Feuerbach this century. It should become a major source for refocusing upon this thinker who is germaine to the study of religion. This is a stimulating and thought-provoking book which is destined to become a classic in Feuerbach studies and essential reading for all engaged in the social-scientific study of religious belief." Thomas Hobbes, Word Trade
