La peur et la faute - Psychanalyse et morale

£5.99

Product description

"The whole tradition of Western thought seems to be summed up in a grandiose and increasingly advanced attempt to dissociate and separate what was inwardly a conscious and unconscious mind, reason and feeling, head and heart, priesthood and medicine, sanctification and healing In short, it has divided man himself to such an extent that it is impossible to see how it could be cured. "It is not easy to explain what led to this state of affairs. A first reason is found in the very origins of Christianity. Since his birth, in the name of the Gospel, he has endeavoured to stifle pagan myths by demonizing them. What was at the beginning only a struggle against paganism proved increasingly a struggle against the human, Against the archetypal images of the unconscious; And it soon came to be believed that the best way to serve God was to stand up with all the strength of his personality on the rubble of instinctive impulses, like sacred columns dominating the obscure maternal soil. (...) Finally, psychology also ignores everything about God and the divine; She has become soulless, as has lost her soul the doctrine of God, theology. It is in this truly schizophrenic development of reason, to which we can here only allude, in this negation of the human unconscious present from the origins of Christianity that roots of misunderstandings, anxieties, Of language, the reciprocal excommunications of theology and of psychology,
