Answer - Freud argues that religious ideas are illusions, that is, fulfillments of infantile wishes. Do you agree with him? Why or why not?

Answer only ONE of the following:

  1. Freud argues that religious ideas are illusions, that is, fulfillments of infantile wishes. Do you agree with him? Why or why not? (Hint: do not get caught up in the details of his argument presented in the reading Future of an Illusion. Just briefly show that you understand what he means when he calls religious ideas illusions and then devout the bulk of your essay to supporting and developing your reasons for agreeing or disagreeing with him).
  2. What might Klein think about the film “Jesus Camp?”
  3. Using material from Lesson 5 (and Jones’ chapter 4), what might Jones say about the idealization depicted in the film “Jesus Camp”?
  4. Analyze some personal involvement you`ve had (or someone you know has had) with religion and determine whether how they participated in the religion (NOT the religion itself) would be considered healthy or unhealthy (or some combination of both) using the ideas of at least one of the following:
    • Freud’s notion of religious ideas as “illusions.”
    • Jones’ criteria, from the perspective of self psychology, for determining healthy and unhealthy religious participation found in Lesson 2.
    • Jones` criteria, from the perspective of self psychology, for determining unhealthy and mature religious idealization found in Lesson 5.
    • Fairbairn`s notion of the "moral defense"
    • Any of Klein`s ideas: the paranoid-schizoid position, the depressive position, projective identification
    • Any of the major ideas Shaw presents in either or both of his essays that you read
    • Winnicott’s ideas as they were related to religion presented in Lesson 7.
    • Epstein’s notion of surrender
    • Ghent’s thoughts about submission and surrender
    • Jung’s ideas as they relate to religion
    • Hillman’s ideas as they relate to religion
  5. Discuss the film "Words of My Perfect Teacher" using ideas presented in Lesson 8. Focus on the teacher and the disciples. Discuss them using at least some of the themes from the Lesson such as idealization/de-idealization, submission/surrender, keeping an object within omnipotent control/surrendering this control, object relating/object usage.

Analyze Jung`s account of his religious experience presented in "Confrontation with the Unconscious" using at least one of the ways to distinguish healthy and unhealthy religion presented in the course

Now I am happy that I made the right decision of coming to Insta Research for help. My term paper was so technical and analytical at the same time. I got really confused about what to do but got relaxed when I was given such a humble writer. He clarified my concepts with the best explanations and discussions. I almost interacted with him on daily basis within the writing process. The best feature of this site is quick delivery as I got the work before my deadline. Additionally, the term paper is written skillfully and handled quite professionally. Now I am able to take a deep sigh of relief and thank you all for such speedy help.
