The significance of Feuerbach’s life and thought seems to be increasingly re-recognized in contemporary world. Many readers still find the fascinating and/or disturbing. One reason for this phenomenon is that, according to Harvey, Feuerbach anticipated so many themes of the twentieth century: "a Marxist theory of alienation, the Freudian emphasis on the role of wishing and desire, the empiricist’s stress on sense experience, the phenomenologist’s concern with the body, and the existentialist concern with the confrontation of the consciousness with death and anxiety." (Harvey 1995, 30) We can certainly interpret this anticipation as Feuerbach’s lasting influence on humankind.
Sigmund Freud would later adopt and extend Feuerbach’s ideas in (1927). In that book Freud uses language very similar to Feuerbach—projection, wish, etc.—to argue a very similar general thesis that is, however, rather different in its details. In fact, it seems to me that Feuerbach’s general approach to the interpretation of religion is paradigmatic among social scientists, who attempt to understand such ideologies in terms of their social functions just as Feuerbach did.
