"Psychoanalysis and Catholicism" is an exploration of the similarities and differences of these two, often feuding, perspectives on living. Among the topics addressed, the authors summarise Augustine's, Bonaventure's and Thomas's concepts of soul, and discuss how psychotherapy may help a Catholic discover the depths of his or her mental life; compare Jung's and Freud's views of religion; and trace psychoanalytic ideas of religion to Freud's own unconscious processes.
