The Quest for Power: Religion and Politics by Samuel Slipp, MD
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In this provocative book, Dr. Samuel Slipp brings his background as a psychoanalytic scholar and neurological researcher to bear on the timeless--and increasingly timely--intersection of religion and politics. Taking to task those writers who dismiss religion outright as a form of evil mass delusion, Slipp draws on the words of Freud, the teachings of Jesus, and his own original work to point his finger not at religion as the cause of the world's ills but at what corrupts religion--power. He ultimately finds that belief itself is inextricably intertwined with the human condition and argues that reason and religion must be reconciled for the benefit of mankind's future.
