Psychological Theories of Religion (Paperback)James Forsyth (author)
- We can order this
For undergraduate/graduate introductory courses in Psychology of Religion.
This text surveys major theorists in the psychology of religion-S. Freud, C.G. Jung, W. James, E. Fromm, G. Allport, A. Maslow, and V. Frankl-who represent classical theories in this field. Each of these theorists presents a comprehensive theory of religion which attempts to give an account of the psychological origin and/or value of religion. The approach of the text shows how the theory of religion emerges not only from the theorist's psychological theory but also from life experiences.
