Conversant with a host of leading modern psychologists and thinkers, Browning finds much of value in psychoanalysis, cognitive moral development, and neuroscience, introducing readers to Freud, Gilligan, Damasio, Gadamer, and Ricoeur---while remaining fully aware that at times Christianity will diverge. 264 pages, softcover. Eerdmans.
Interest in psychology permeates our culture, with psychological solutions advanced for a host of moral dilemmas. How should ethically minded Christians include insights from such disciplines as psychoanalysis, cognitive moral development, and neuroscience in their theological reflection? Don Browning offers a serious proposal for combining these disciplines with the best in ethical reflection from a Christian standpoint.
