... voordoen: door ze logisch en systematisch te benaderen. Deze bewering sluit in zich dat de rol die het geloof in een maatschappij speelt in direct verband staat met verschillende sociologische en psychologische facetten van de maatschappij op dat moment, omdat ook die door de contemporaine logica gegenereerd worden. De logica oftewel de wijze van denken en dus de wereldbeschouwing heeft consequenties voor de ... moderne vorm van religie, die ook nog altijd in ontwikkeling is. Dat het doen van een schuldbelijdenis en de overgave aan God tot heil leiden valt wél te rijmen met de psychologie. Het gaat mij er nu om dat we de Bijbel op grote schaal onrecht aandoen als we hem verifieerbaar gezag op het terrein van de astronomie of natuurwetenschap toekennen. Nooit hoeven ... kunnen we over hem alleen maar spreken in bewoordingen van abstractie- alsof hij een kracht en een macht is- óf in bewoordingen die de mens eigen zijn. Omdat nu het psychologisch vertroostende element in de omgang met God in het traditionele geloof te waardevol is om tot een onpersoonlijke entiteit gedegradeerd te worden, kiest men met de mensen uit de Bijbeltijd voor de ...

... passion for the promotion of Judaism was much more central to his concerns than was the question of the collective unconscious, even though the problem of group mind would later dominate the psychological component of his catastrophism. He suggested that: the high incidence of word-plays in Hebrew-- is probably connected with the manner of thinking of the Jewish race; the tendency ... that he would later assume that seemingly concordant myths from widely separated peoples were either eye-witness accounts of global catastrophes or else extremely accurate racial memories of those events transmitted both socially and psychologically to the descendants of the witnesses. He never referred to his own work which cast doubt upon the assumption that commonalty of observation implies both similarity of experience and accuracy of reportage ... of free association to the dreamer after awakening in order to understand the dream.

A chapter about jealousy (the only chapter printed). The book about the hatred is a new approach to ... It had little other value but to claim additional authority for Israel skywards as well as landwards."

Freud's psychoanalytic approach to purely legendary stereotypes was invalid in the case of Moses because Freud regarded him ... Arabia to worship their volcano god. Velikovsky first read Freud's early chapters on this theme in Imago in the summer of 1937 while he was in Paris for the International Congress of Psychologists, but apparently he paid them little mind, being absorbed in his Introgenesis project (2) and his medical career; he was still the only practicing psychoanalyst in Palestine. ...

... the natural sciences, the social sciences, and the humanities. Second, he was inter-disciplinary. He worked productively in the interface between sciences.

... as the material conditions of study become more difficult and less amenable to continuous ordinary sense observation.
