This study examines the history of the psychoanalytic theory of mysticism, starting with the seminal correspondence between Freud and Romain Rolland concerning the concept of `oceanic feeling'. Parsons argues that the history of psychology has misunderstood Freud's own views, and as a consequence has over-reduced mysticism to psychological regression or pathology.

Review:

user-friendly ... particularly excellent in the way it highlights Freud's knowledge of Eastern religious concepts and texts, as well as in the way it deconstructs the common view of Freud's engagement with mysticism. ... For those interested in psycho-analytic approaches to religion, this will be an essential book to read for some time to come. (Richard H. Armstrong, University of Houston, Psychoanalysis and History, 2001 Vol 3)
