Three Ideological Traditions and the Psychology of Religion

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This response contends that Vergote limits the psychology of religion to a study of the behavioral correlates of religiosity. Ignored in this approach is the belief core common to all religions. Further, this approach proscribes the ability of psychologists to make judgments about religious claims or to explain religion in any manner. Vergote's approach appears to be apologetic and, thereby, problematic.
