CPP 515 Psychology of Religion: Its History and Theories I
ABOUT THE COURSE
This course is designed to introduce the student or, in the case of students already familiar with some or all of the theorists discussed here, to refresh the student’s memory of the major systems of modern thought in psychology. The focus of this course is to build the incremental development of the discipline of the psychology of religion from its earliest inception to its current status as a recognized sub-discipline of psychology beginning with William James and going up through David Roberts. As there are ten theorists treated in the required text, the student will focus on the first five theorists in the text as the second five theorists are covered in the course sequel titled “Psychology of Religion: History and Theories II”.
