"This work, calling upon the realm of anthropology of religion, psychology, and particularly psychoanalysis, explores how the inner workings of the minds and hearts of the early Christians led to the formation of the initial Christian community. It discusses how subjective events and psychic forces that form an individual influence the forming of a religious community and how the cultic process in the pre-Christian Palestinian background led to Christianity developing from the mission and preaching of Jesus."--Jacket
The dynamics of human aggression : theoretical foundations, clinical applications by Ana-Maria Rizzuto( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aggression is often thought of as involving hostility, anger, or destructiveness. In the context of analysis, this view is based on the concept of aggression as an impersonal instinctive drive that forces the subject to act destructively, requiring defensive responses to control it. The Dynamics of Human Aggression challenges this view, proposing instead that aggression is best conceptualised as the capacity of the mind to carry out any psychic or physical activity directed to overcoming any obstacle interfering with the completion of an intended internal or external action. This new paradigm advances a single concept to encompass all varieties of aggression. To put forth and justify their new theory to readers on both the theoretical and clinical fronts, the authors have reviewed the main theoretical selections of the field from Freud to contemporary writers, and offer a wide range of clinical accounts

The ethical dimension of psychoanalysis : a dialogue by W. W Meissner( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Addressing the common ground between ethics and psychoanalysis, W. W. Meissner asks "Does psychoanalysis have anything to contribute to ethical understanding and reflection?" and conversely, "Does ethics have anything to offer analytic understanding of the complexities of human behavior and decision-making?" Both disciplines focus their interest and concern not only on the inner well-being of the individual, but also on questions of his or her adaptation to the outside world, including both intimate personal relations as well as broader societal and communal relations. This book explores and explicates areas of interaction and common interest between these two disciplines in the hope of opening the way to further exploration and dialogue in the understanding of the human phenomenon." --Book Jacket
