Notes
Freud USA - - - - 1912 Reeves, Thomas C. Twentieth Century America: A Brief History. New York: Oxford University Press (2000); pg. 48. "In 1912 Margaret Sanger, founder of the birth control movement in America, was a radical Socialist and militant feminist... Mrs. Sanger, one of eleven children and the mother of three, had personally discarded the Victorian view of marriage, sex, and the family accepted by the vast majority of Americans. Her radicalism stemmed in part from childhood experiences and the challenging new literature on sexual psychology by Sigmund Freud and Havelock Ellis. "
Freud USA - - - - 1928 Reeves, Thomas C. Twentieth Century America: A Brief History. New York: Oxford University Press (2000); pg. 86. "Many urban women, strongly influenced by the cultural and technological innovations of the ear, began to take jobs outside the home; by 1928 five time as many women were employed as in 1918... They also experimented with sex and talked freely about the fashionable theories of Sigmund Freud. The new freedom led to a sharp rise in the divorce rate... "
Freud world - - - - 1927 Finke, Roger & Rodney Stark. The Churching of America, 1776-1990. New Brunswick, NJ: Rutgers University Press (1992; 3rd printing 1997); pg. 251. "The psychopathological theory of piety has appeared in many forms, all of them bristling with antagonism and contempt. Consider Freud, who managed to characterize religion as a 'neurosis,' an 'illusion,' a 'poison,' an 'intoxicant,' and 'childishness to be overcome' all on one page of his famous book on the subject (1927, p. 88). But the evidence failed to cooperate. In a survey of all published empirical studies Allen E. Bergin (1983) found that most reported a positive, rather than a negative, relationship between religiousness and mental health, and that most of the studies that did report a positive assocition between religion and psychopathology were tautological, having included religious items in their measures of psychopathology. "
Freud world - - - - 1938 Yenne, Bill. 100 Men Who Shaped World History. San Francisco, CA: Bluewood Books (1994); pg. 82. "In 1900, Freud published The Interpretation of Dreams, in which he sought to quantify and categorize the complex activities of the human subconscious. In 1906, he co-founded the International Congress of Psychoanalysis with several colleagues... After his death [1939], the popularity of psychoanalysis, the medical discipline which he founded, continued to grow, especially in the United States in the two decades following World War II. Today, the therapeutic approaches he pioneered continue to be used in modified forms by many psychiatrists to treat various mental disorders... "
Freud world - - - - 1939 Osborne, Richard. Philosophy for Beginners. New York, NY: Writers and Readers Publishing (1992); pg. 144. "Sigmund Freud (1856-1939). Someone else who put a spanner in the smooth workings of philosophy was the founder of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud... There is a large debate about whether Psychoanalysis is a science and whether Freud was right about human sexual development and the Unconscious. The revolutionary importance of his ideas derived from his insistence on the centrality of sexuality in all aspects of human existence. This also explained in part why his ideas were resisted... Many philosophers have opted for the line that since psychoanalysis isn't empiracally testable (you can't photograph the Unconscious), Freud can safely be ignored. "
Freud world - - - - 1940 *LINK* Hexham, Irving. Concise Dictionary of Religion. Carol Stream, USA: InterVarsity Press (1994). (v. online 6 Oct. 1999) "FREUD, Sigmund (1856-1940). Austrian neurologist and founder of PSYCHOANALYSIS. Worked on the treatment of hysteria by hypnosis but later developed a method of treatment in which he replaced hypnosis by free association of ideas. Believed that a complex of repressed and forgotten impressions underlies all abnormal mental states such as hysteria and developed the theory that dreams are an unconscious representation of repressed desires, especially of sexual desires. Strongly ANTI-CHRISTIAN, he authored The Future of an Illusion (1927) and Moses and Monotheism (1939), works which develop the projectionist theories similar to FEUERBACH. In many respects his technique of psychoanalysis can be seen as a FORM of SECULAR MYSTICISM reminiscent of JEWISH mystical thought. "
Freud world - - - - 1999 Gallagher, Winifred. Working on God. New York: Random House (1999); pg. xxiv. "If religion--the record of our struggle to understand why we exist and what we sould therefore do--has tragic flaws, so do the modern secular 'faiths' of Marx and Freud that not long ago seemed destined to replace it.

"Full Gospel Missionary Society... Vancouver, BC, Canada [H.Q.]. The Latter Rain Movement... Among the first places which leaders of the new movement were invited to speak was the Glad Tiding Temple in Vancouver, British Columbia where Reg Layzell pastored. Layzell became an enthusiastic supporter of the revival and the Temple became a major center from which the revival spread around the continent. The Glad Tidings Missioary Society began as an extension of the Glad Tidings Temple of Vancouver, British Columbia. Over the years, other congregations affected by the Latter Rain (in Canada and the state of Washington) became associated with the Temple through it. It has become a primary religious body itself. Mission work is conducted in Africa, Taiwan, and the Arctic. Membershipo: Not reported. In the 1970s there were eight churches, three in Washington and five in Canada. "
