Example text

42 After the Holocaust Today, Winnicott’s view of transitional experience constitutes the leading psychoanalytic framework within which religion is understood ( Jones, 1991; Ulanov 2001). One reason is because Winnicott was sympathetic to religion: To the child who develops “belief in” can be handed the god of the household or of the society. .

Evidence . . that the parent-figures are lacking in confidence in the processes of human nature and are frightened of the unknown. (Winnicott 1965b, 93) The other reason Winnicott’s psychoanalytic theory is useful for thinking about religion is that his account of how we create what is already there lends itself to a nondogmatic belief in God. ” is not so central, not so important. Helpful as this aspect of Winnicott’s work is in thinking about God, it is not the part on which I am going to draw, at least not directly.

The chapter continues with the leading themes of this book: asking whether Primo Levi was the simple atheist he seemed to be, taking up once again his struggle with the Book of Job.
