Abstract

231 denied "that a non-believing interpreter can appreciate some of the believer's point of view"; he claimed only that the decisive "'issue is whether [the nonbeliever] can appreciate [i.e., accept] the reality of [the object of] religion for the believer"' (28). But he still does not seem to notice that if the latter is all he is affirming and the former is truly not being denied, then the case he makes for a strong reductionism throughout the rest of the essay has largely been compromised. The thinking anti-reductionist asserts the importance of the very same claims, though he might hesitate a bit over a certain ambiguity in each. 4. Segal's quotation is from Sigmund Freud, The Future of an Illusion, tr. W. D. Robson-Scott, rev. James Strachey (Garden City, New York: Doubleday Anchor Books).
