"Argyle, a social psychologist of significant merit, has written an authoritative survey of recent developments in psychology's analysis of religion... the information and insights offered by Argyle concerning psychology, religion and the study of how they are related in human society constitute a valuable resource for profitable philosophical reflection at the end of the 20th century."
-"International Philosophical Quarterly
..."an authoritative survey of what we know about psychology and religion. It is very clear and readable, and reflects Michael Argyle's considerable reputation and experience."
-Fraser Watts, University of Cambridge
Should psychology try to explain religion or try to understand it? The author of this book ranges over the whole of psychology to look at the results of psychology's study of religion. His belief in both the empirical value of psychology and the spiritual value of religion are evident.
