Item 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

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Revealing the Relationship between Psychology and Theology  May 19, 2000
An intellectually stimulating and enlightening work discussing interplay between some of Psychology and Theology's greatest minds. Most appealing is Meissner's presentation of the relationship between Dr. Sigmund Freud and protestant minister Oskar Pfister. Focusing on their shared common goal of "healing souls," Meissner illustrates their friendship without compromising the power of their intellectual debate. Further, a thourough discussion of the issues in Freud's "Future of an Illusion", and Meissner's lesser known rebuttal, "Illusion of the Future" enlightens the reader concerning the relevance of religion in the pursuit of a healthy soul in the midst of a failing civilization. A significant read for psychologists, theologians or anyone interested in meshing the two disciplines.
