Freud, Jung, and Religion
THEO 343 - Freud, Jung, and Religion3 hours What do psychologists have to say about religion? Is it a crutch, the “obsessional neurosis of humanity?” Is God an illusion of the weak? Or is religion good for us, and location in the presence of the divine essential for human well being? This course will focus on the psychologies of religion espoused by Sigmund Freud and C.G. Jung, and will consider some of the challenges that their theories present to Christian theology.
