The social psychology of religion by Michael Argyle( Book )

32 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in English and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1975, this book is a completely rewritten, revised version of Michael Argyle's standard work, Religious Behaviour , first published in 1958. A great deal of new research had appeared since that date, which threw new light on the nature and origins of religious behaviour, beliefs and experience. Trends in religious activity in Britain and the United States since 1900, and the state of religion in these two countries at the time, are examined. Evidence is presented on the origins of religious activity - including the effects of stress, drugs, meditation, ev
The Israeli connection : who Israel arms and why by Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi( Book )

13 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author explains how Israel has become the arms dealer and military trainer of last resort, for everyone from Guatemala's murderous military to Mobutu in Africa and the Shah of Iran. It is, above all, in his eye-opening look at Israel's secret alliance with South Africa that Beit-Hallahmi illustrates the tragic situation his increasingly isolated nation faces today. He suggests surprising parallels between the way South Aftricans view blacks and the way Israelis view Palestinians, and in detailing the extensive ties--from nuclear-weapon sharing to military aid, trade, and tourism--he explores what this policy means for Israel

The psychology of religious behaviour, belief, and experience by Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Psychology of Religious Behaviour, Belief and Experience is the most comprehensive survey available of theories and research on religion from the perspective of psychology. Religious belief is never evenly distributed, and is correlated with such variables as social background, gender and personality characteristics. Beit-Hallahmi and Argyle use findings in these areas to test numerous explanations of the origins and functions of religion in human culture. They also consider social consequences of religiosity, religious experience, religious attitudes, the effect of religion on health, the acquisition of beliefs, conversion, and the benefits or otherwise of religion. Their main conclusion is that religiosity is first and foremost social, and is learned like other kinds of social acts." "Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi and Michael Argyle are renowned for their clear, analytical approach, and this new state-of-the-art study of psychology and religion is no exception. It will be welcomed as an update to their previous work in the area by social psychologists, sociologists and theologians worldwide."--BOOK JACKET

Psychoanalysis, identity, and ideology : critical essays on the Israel/Palestine case by John Bunzl( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its founding one hundred years ago psychoanalysis has been the focus of contention, controversy, and debate. What has been clear despite all controversies is that the psychoanalytic tradition has created and inspired special modes of critical thinking which have been used to examine both human behavior and corresponding social ideologies. Psychoanalysis, Identity, and Ideology presents papers from a historic two day conference of leading Israeli, Palestinian, and European psychologists held in June of 1999. Sensitive professional and historical dilemmas are discussed with refreshing openness. This collection embodies the tradition of critical thinking applied to ideologies and identities, Zionism in particular, through a non-exclusive prism of psychoanalytic traditions
Psychological perspectives on religion and religiosity by Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is religion to blame for deadly conflicts? Should religious behaviour be credited more often for acts of charity and altruism? In what ways are religious and {u2018}spiritual{u2019} ideas, practices and identities surviving and changing as religion loses its political power in those parts of the world which are experiencing increasing secularization? Written by one of the world{u2019}s leading authorities on the psychology of religion and social identity, Psychological Perspectives on Religion and Religiosity offers a comprehensive and multidisciplinary review of a century of research into the origins and consequences of religious belief systems and religious behaviour. The book employs a unique theoretical framework that combines the {u2018}new{u2019} cognitive-evolutionary psychology of religion, examining the origins of religious ideas, with the {u2018}old{u2019} psychology of religiosity, which looks at correlates and consequences. It examines a wide range of psychological variables and their relationship with religiosity. It is also provides fresh insights into classical topics in the psychology of religion, such as religious conversion, the relevance of Freud{u2019}s ideas about religion and religiosity, the meaning of secularization, and the crucial role women play in religion. The book concludes with the author{u2019}s reflections on the future for the psychology of religion as a field. Psychological Perspectives on Religion and Religiosity will be invaluable for academic researchers in psychology, sociology, anthropology, political science, economics, and history worldwide. It will also be of great interest to advanced undergraduate students and graduate students across the social sciences. --Provided by publisher

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychoanalysis and Theism starts with a critique of psychoanalysis and its application to religion which, surprisingly, ends up expressing enthusiastic support for some classical psychoanalytic ideas. Following this essay by Adolf Grünbaum, one of the world's leading philosophers of science, nine senior scholars offer their own critical reflections on Freud's work and its hidden motives, on the potential of psychoanalytic ideas for the study of religion, and on the interpretation of the Virgin Birth and other doctrines
