The Birth of the Living God

Full Product Description

Utilizing both clinical material based on the life histories of twenty patients and theoretical insights from the works of Freud, Erikson, Fairbairn, and Winnicott, Ana-Maria Rizzuto examines the origin, development, and use of our God images. Whereas Freud postulated that belief in God is based on a child's idea of his father, Rizzuto argues that the God representation draws from a variety of sources and is a major element in the fabric of one's view of self, others, and the world.

The Birth of the Living God by Ana-Maria Rizzuto was published by The University of Chicago Press in March 1981 and is our 50688th best seller. The ISBN for The Birth of the Living God is 9780226721026.
