Abstract

In this article the author first prov ides the lexicology of temptation the word and the concept have been semantically integrated into theology, but never indexed in scientific psychology. Next he provides a clinical description of three experiences of temptation without any moral or religious implications. After this he considers robbery, rape, and violence as an expressive projection of social prejudices or as repression in an ascetic ideal. Next he describes the current debate in Christian religion: are there temptations without a Tempter? His conclusion deals with the methodological presuppositions for the psychological study of experiences of temptation.
