Chapter Summary

Freud's two main additions to the theory of man-the primacy of the unconscious and the centrality of sexuality, were set forth by him early in his career. Carl G. Jung and Otto Rank were the two disciples, closest to the early Freud, and are unquestionably those, whose defection from orthodox psychoanalysis was most painful to Freud and felt by him as personal betrayal. Jung's attitudes towards religious experience were the most opposed to Freud's. Rank's was a positive evaluation of religion's importance for man in creativity. One must consider how the implications of the theories of Jung and Rank throw light on the four Russian Christian philosophers who emphasize human creativity so strongly and are so very productive in their creative lives, lives guided in each of them by a version of the Godman concept and deemed by each a Christian, creative life.

Keywords: Carl G. Jung; Freud; Otto Rank; Russian Christian philosophers
