Description - The Religious Function of the Psyche by Lionel Corbett
Traditional concepts of God are no longer tenable for many people who nevertheless experience a strong sense of the sarcre. These people require an approach to religion that recognises its actual manifestations within their own lives. The Religious Function of the Psyche offers an examination of divinity that focuses on its unique, personal manifestations within the psyche, the body, relationships and the world at large. Using the language and interpretive methods of depth psychology, particularly those of C.G. Jung and psychoanalytic self psychology, the author, Lionel Corbett, offers an introduction to Jung and religion and a bridge between the transpersonal and the personal levels of the psyche. Lionel Corbett suggests a psychological model for the relationship between the divine and the human and offers an alternative approach to spirituality. Problems of evil, suffering and the notion of human development as an incarnation of spirit, are dealt with in this book by a religious approach to the psyche that can be applied in both everyday life and within the practice of psychotherapy.
