MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this dissertation is (1) to offer a redefinition of the psychology of religion in light of its historic and contemporary status; (2) to discover the flaccid aspects traditionally present in the psychology of religion and invigorate these aspects with contemporary psychological theories, especially certain theories emphasized by Gordon W. Allport; and (3) to present various illustrative hypotheses to be tested in view of the understanding of what is meant by the psychology of religion as developed in this study, thus indicating special factors to be considered in designing future research in the psychology of religion.
