An entertaining yet serious critique of modern psychology. Vitz shows that the self-centered therapies so popular today are antithetical to the Christian tradition, and that they constitute another problem, not a solution for anything. Required reading for all thinking Christians.
An Eighth Day View:
A trenchant analysis of modern psychology -- an enterprise that Paul Vitz maintains has become a religion, a secular cult of self, now part of the problem of modern life rather than part of its resolution. Virtually rewritten, this second edition of the original 1977 text takes into account much of what has happened in the field of psychology during the past seventeen years. Two completely new chapters are also included -- one on education and "values clarification" and the other on New Age religion.
