Title
Dis-integrating Psychology and Theology
Abstract

This essay explores the dis-integrative dynamics within the ongoing process of relating the disciplines of psychology and theology, suggesting that such dissolutive forces can play an important and valuable role in the dialogue. Healthy development requires that we sometimes let things fall apart. The main sections of the article point to the potentially generative power of dis-integrating psychology, theology, selves and gods. The conclusion addresses the existential fear and desire that often characterize human attempts to hold it all together, i.e., the tasks of “integration” in all its forms.
