Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Psychology of Religion doesn't simply offer an outside perspective on religiosity. Notably psychoanalysis - a key theory in the psychology of religion - has deep roots in Western theology and philosophie when it comes to method, discourse and key issues. Does, for example, therapy find a precursor in confession practices (Foucault)? Is psychoanalytic discourse rooted in the theologies and mysticism of modernity (De Certeau)? Does Freud's interest in the sense of guilt reflect a European guilt culture (Delumeau)? What is the meaning of Reformation thought for the modern turn to the subject (Gillespie)? Is there perhaps a deep filiation between psychoanalysis and Protestantism (Lacan)? These questions are central in this seminar.
