Dark Religion: 
Fundamentalism From The Perspective of Jungian Psychology

Dark Religion: Fundamentalism From The Perspective of Jungian Psychology by Vlado Šolc and George J. Didier, explores the psychological dynamics and causes of religious fundamentalism and fanaticism. The book offers an in-depth-psychological analysis of what happens when a person becomes possessed by the unconscious energies of the Self.

Dark Religion also reveals that spirituality is an inherent dimension of human life and one of its most essential needs. It only becomes “dark” when it denies, ignores, or separates itself from its vital roots.

“A careful and thoughtful psychological reflection on one of the burning issues of our times—radical fundamentalism. Šolc and Didier offer both trenchant analysis and potential solutions for this central dilemma of postmodernity.”
-Murray Stein, Ph.D., author of Outside, Inside and All Around
