Psychology and Chrip stianity: Autonomy, Integration or Communication?

2007. Vol. 4. No. 2. P. 74–89 [issue contents]
The position of the priest Andrey Lorgus is discussed. On the one hand, he criticizes the traditional psychology, and on the other hand, the priest calls for renovation of psychology on the path of Christian theology and anthropology. The author of the article adduces the arguments to support the rational way of solving these problems. He observes the problem of demarcation between science and religion on the example of Emanuel Swedenborg's life. At the same time he shows that nowadays religion has another sense (it becomes more and more a special type of sociality) and that many people contrive to live in two different worlds (religious and ordinary) simultaneously. In the article two different contexts are distinguished and discussed: how psychology and religion serve the existing ways of human's life and how they create the conditions which contribute to the formation of a new human being. It is concluded that psychology and Christianity should turn to each other and start a not easy dialogue.
