Michael Palmer provides a detailed account of two of the most important theories of religion in the history of psychology--those of Freud and Jung. ^ The book first analyzes Freud's claim that religion is an obsessional neurosis, a psychological illness fueled by sexual repression. He then considers Jung's rejection of Freud's theory, and his own assertion that it is the absence of religion, not its presence, which leads to neurosis.
