0 Reviews
In this pathbreaking book, a professor of religion who is also a clinical psychologist challenges Freud's view of religion as one-way transference. Using examples from clinical cases, James W. Jones argues instead that religious experiences, doctrines, and practices reflect the internalized interpersonal patterns that constitute our sense of ourselves.
