Gerard Fountain

In this scholarly study, Laor examines the beliefs of many analysts, starting with Freud, concerning the validity and nature of religion and its compatibility with psychoanalytic thought and practice. He proposes that religion is not a regressive phenomenon but rather "a reasonable approach to the unknowable." Psychoanalysis can bear in mind this tolerant view, and the attitude of the religious person can be regarded with neutrality and respect; it will not require analysis but stands outside our concerns as analysts. This is an excellent, thorough, and balanced discussion. No brief abstract can begin to convey the richness of its content.
