Psychology As Religion delivers a trenchant analysis of modern psychology-an enterprise that author Vitz maintains has become a religion, a secular cult of self, now part of the problem of modern life rather than part of its resolution.
A trenchant analysis of modern psychology -- an enterprise that Paul Vitz maintains has become a religion, a secular cult of self, now part of the problem of modern life rather than part of its resolution. Virtually rewritten, this second edition of the original 1977 text takes into account much of what has happened in the field of psychology during the past seventeen years. Two completely new chapters are also included -- one on education and "values clarification" and the other on New Age religion.
Paul C. Vitz is professor emeritus of psychology at New York University. His other books include Sigmund Freud's Christian Unconscious and Faith of the Fatherless: The Psychology of Atheism.
