0 Reviews
This work integrates the theoretical, empirical and clinical literature on the psychology of religion. Organized according to their fundamentally objective or subjective perspective, the most significant studies in German and French literature are discussed, as well as other important contributions from around the world. The author explains that literature of an objective nature considers behavioural and comparative (animal) psychology, the biological bases of religion, experimental approaches and correlational studies. The subjective perspective encompasses psychoanalytic approaches. Four biographical studies of the field's most prominent founders - Hall, James, Freud and Jung - are included, along with brief biographical sketches of other contributors.
