W. W. Meissner


I would like to thank Dr. Rizzuto for providing this obituary of Dr. Meissner, who was a prolific writer and important psychoanalytic theorist. His most recent book was Time, Self, and Psychoanalysis but an important theme in his work focused on the psychology of religion. The following is a list of some of the books addressing religion.

To the Greater Glory: A Psychological Study of Ignatian Spirituality (Marquette Studies in Theology)
The Cultic Origins of Christianity: The Dynamics of Religious Development (Theology)
Thy Kingdom Come
Vincent's Religion: The Search for Meaning (Reshaping of Psychoanalysis)
Life and Faith: Psychological Perspectives on Religious Experience
Ignatius of Loyola: The Psychology of a Saint
Psychoanalysis and Religious Experience
