Title
Psychopathology, Sin, and the DSM: Convergence and Divergence
Abstract

In this article, the Judeo-Christian view of sin is reviewed as well as the psychoanalytic and humanistic views of psychopathology. All three perspectives converge in their assumption of a universally flawed human condition. Conversely, the behavioral and symptom oriented phenotypal description of psychopathology found in the dsm diverges from the Judeo-Christian theological tradition. Inconsistencies and inherent difficulties are noted in the list oriented phenotypal approach to psychopathology or sin.
