Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415147476, Paperback)Michael Palmer provides a detailed account of the theories of religion of both Freud and Jung and sets them side by side for the first time
In the first section of the text Dr Palmer analyses Freud's claim that religion is an obsessional neurosis - a psychological illness fuelled by sexual repression. The second section considers Jung's rejection of Freud's theory and his own assertion that it is the absence of religion, not its presence, which leads to neurosis.
Freud and Jung on Religion is suitable for general and specialist reader alike, as it assumes no prior knowledge of the theories of Freud or Jung and is an invaluable teaching text.
