Review by:
Thomas Acklin

Andersen attempts to situate the Erikson of the text with the Erikson of rumor, noting that therapists, theologians, historians, psychologists, and others have all found Erikson valuable in ways which obscure the true nature of his writing. Summarizing some of the critiques of Erikson, such as those made by Roazen, Coles, Gilligan, and Zock, Andersen attempts to situate Erikson among his former students, disciples, and critics. Considering Young Man Luther and Gandhi's Truth, as well as the essay on Jesus, “The Galilean's Sayings and the Sense of ‘I’,” Andersen explores the affinity of Erikson's thought to theology and religious experience, feeling that many scholars have misunderstood the religious aspects of his synthesis.
