Description
In this provocative book, W. W. Meissner, a Jesuit and psychoanalyst, attempts to bring about a rapprochement between psychoanalysis and religious thinking. Utilizing the resources of modern psychoanalytic insight, he examines Freud's views on religion, explores the dialectical relationship between psychoanalysis and religion, and applies more contemporary concepts in psychoanalysis to the understanding of religious experience. "Dr. Meissner has written a book which is consistently interesting, often challenging, and impressive for its wide range of scholarship in two fields not often combined in the same work. . . . Dr. Meissner has done us a service in this scholarly work by demonstrating how two perspectives of the human condition have over the course of the last several decades come to similar conclusions."-Otto F. Thaler, M.D., Journal of the American Academy of Religion "A rich and stimulating book addressing important issues that lie at the intersection of psychoanalysis and religion."-Paul C. Vitz, Contemporary Psychology "Meissner has made a challenging useful contribution that will be pondered, applied, and debated. It will undoubtedly also achieve the goal of bringing about more understanding between analysts and theologians."-Lowell Rubin, M.D., Newsletter, Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute
