Freud and Faith
Living in the Tension
  • By Kirk A. Bingaman
$31.95
Whether Sigmund Freud s theory precludes serious engagement with psychoanalytic theory for those professing faith in the God of the Judeo-Christian tradition has been controversial for years. Coming to terms with Freud s theory has proved difficult for religious believers because of his stance that religious faith is little more than psychological projection. Building on the work of philosopher and theologian Paul Ricoeur, psychoanalyst Ana-Maria Rizzuto, and feminist theorist Judith Van Herik, author Kirk A. Bingaman demonstrates that it is possible and even advantageous for believers to hold their religious faith in dialectical tension with psychoanalysis. Bingaman shows how Freud s critique of religion can enrich and strengthen, rather than destroy, the faith of the believer. What emerges from the author s argument is a creative method for living within the emotional and spiritual tension that develops whenever our belief system is challenged or disrupted."
