The first critical guide to the essential literature reflecting and expressing psychoanalytic approaches to religion, this volume's concentrates on critical assessments that steer the user toward works of lasting value. The book's first priority is to include publications clearly aimed at continuing the Freudian tradition and contributing to the psychoanalytic study of religion. The book will be of interest to scholars and students of psychology and religion as well as the general reader who is seeking works on those topics. Most of the psychoanalytic literature in English since 1920 is included and is organized in 21 topical sections. Cross-references and indexes increase the usefulness of the work. The author has tried to include every coherent effort, guided by psychoanalytic theory, to offer an explanation, understanding, or interpretation of religion or religious behavior. The work will be of interest in the fields of psychoanalysis, psychology, sociology, anthropology, history, literature, folklore, and religion. Public libraries will find this a valuable reference tool to offer the general reader who is interested in a broad spectrum of ideas.

This collection traces the history of psycho-analytically informed thinking about dreams, using selected contributions from Freud to the present to highlight both the legacy of The Interpretation of dreams and the evolving use of the dream as a research tool- of the mind first, later of the psychoanalytic process and of pathology and loge predicaments, and finally as a tool to be integrated with other methods of investigation.
