Psychological and psychodynamic aspects of religious experience in the frame of reference of the Abrahamic religions and "Maimonides Lectures". Part 1

Project Details


The psychological and psychodynamic studies of religious experience represent a science of human behaviour and experience, so that religious experience as a specifically human experience can be addressed by the methodologies of psychodynamic psychotherapy research. The research-generated Maimonides Lectures present a mutual fertilisation between Abrahamic religions and sciences through symposia and keynote lectures. In the spirit of the physician, philosopher and scholar Moshe ben Maimon, the Maimonides Lectures encounter the Jewish, Christian and Islamic traditions. This makes a substantial contribution to the culture of KL inclusion, which is committed to valuing diversity. The Maimonides Lectures in Lower Austria are jointly organised by the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) with the Abrahamic religious communities in Austria and the Karl Landsteiner Private University for Health Sciences (KL) under the patronage of the Office of the Lower Austrian Provincial Government, thus establishing cooperative, sustainable research at a level of excellence.
