Beyond being the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud is an author who gave a relevant contribute to many Humanities and scientific disciplines. On this note, it’s interesting to remember the attention he paid to Aesthetics, compared to the Old Testament biblical tradition and history. The reference texts are: Michelangelo’s Moses, Moses as a Man, and the monotheistic religion, though they were written in two different periods of Freud’s production. In this sense, Michelangelo’s Moses, written in 1913, allows to find the elaboration of an aesthetic theory with a precise psychoanalytic and social connotation. Thus, psychoanalysis integrates with Humanities, beyond Aesthetics.
