Religion in psychodynamic perspective : the contributions of Paul W. Pruyser by Paul W Pruyser( )

15 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 1,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At his death in 1987, Paul W. Pruyser of the Menninger Foundation was widely recognized as one of America's foremost authorities on the psychology of religion. His book A Dynamic Psychology of Religion set the stage for creative dialogue on the subject. In this volume, two leading practitioners in the field present a compilation of Pruyser's seminal articles, providing an overview of the major themes in Pruyser's thought. Newton Malony and Bernard Spilka evaluate Pruyser's viewpoint and suggest how his position continues to influence the psychology of religion

Between belief and unbelief by Paul W Pruyser( Book )

22 editions published between 1963 and 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First, a scholarly work on such a "hot" theme as belief and unbelief requires considerable personal involvement and existential engagement on the part of the writer. My ambition to do an honest, scientific job on the topic required objectivity and faithfulness to the observations that form the starting point of conceptual inquiry and systematization. My ambition to be at the same time a clinician (which I am by profession) imposed a special selectivity: a penchant for reasoning within a useful, pragmatic theoretical framework which lacks tightness and elegance but is clinically fascinating because of its hospitality to the messy details of life, and a proneness to seeing the conflictual origins and elements in many situations which may appear pure and simple to a layman. In addition, there is something in the very nature of belief, disbelief, and unbelief that is likely to make the student a participant, at some level, in the material with which he deals."
