God is religions' name for the Other that can achieve the impossible conjunction of Symbolic and Real. Religion, whose practices embody the truth of an unutterable desire for the Other, is also a way to forge a bond with that desire: Judaism ponders the desire of the Other; Islam requires submission to the Other; Christianity posits the love of and for God. What clinical consequences can we draw from them?
Suggested Readings Freud: The Future of an Illusion (1927), Civilization and Its Discontents (1930). Lacan: Seminar XVII (1969-70), The Other Side of Psychoanalysis.
