  • Download Diriger les consciences, guérir les âmes (L'espace de by Hervé GUILLEMAIN PDF

    By Hervé GUILLEMAIN

    L'histoire de los angeles thérapie morale et psychologique des aliénistes et des psychologues doit bien davantage aux pratiques religieuses qu'on veut bien le croire.





    Quand elles s'appliquent à los angeles souffrance des âmes, médecine et faith s'opposent-elles ? L'histoire de l. a. folie pourrait s'écrire en retraçant l. a. lente marche vers une " laïcisation de l'esprit " : le prêtre progressivement dépossédé de son pouvoir guérisseur par le médecin, l'âme qui have a tendency à se fondre dans l'univers neurologique, l'inconscient qui surgit avec l. a. psychanalyse au début du XXe siècle. Pourtant, l'étude des pratiques thérapeutiques, religieuses et laïques, incite à réviser assez largement cette imaginative and prescient schématique. Dans ce livre ambitieux, Hervé Guillemain révèle que los angeles thérapie morale et psychologique des aliénistes et des psychologues doit quelque selected aux pratiques religieuses. Les strategies hypnotiques regardent ainsi du côté de l'exorcisme et los angeles psychanalyse du côté de l. a. confession. On sait peu, par exemple, que, dans l'entre-deux-guerres, des chrétiens jouèrent un rôle very important dans l. a. diffusion de los angeles psychanalyse dans los angeles société française. L'histoire des pratiques thérapeutiques de los angeles folie et des issues psychiques, depuis le traitement ethical appliqué dans les asiles d'aliénés au XIXe siècle jusqu'aux psychothérapies modernes du XXe siècle, apparaît à certains égards comme un nouveau développement de l'histoire des instructions de judgment of right and wrong héritées du christianisme. L'auteur montre que le savoir scientifique sur los angeles folie et sur l. a. sense of right and wrong ne peut être, lui non plus, dissocié de l. a. morale et des options religieux et qu'il faut comprendre ensemble le péché et l. a. dégénérescence, le traitement des aliénistes et l. a. théologie morale, los angeles ownership et l'hystérie. Il avance que, loin de s'opposer, los angeles médecine, los angeles psychologie et l. a. faith font partie d'une même histoire sociale et culturelle.
