Mrs. Helen Rossetti
by H. L. PHILP
Canon of Salisbury
Earlier this year the Rev. Harry Williams spoke in the Third Programme on ' Religion as Self-deception.' He argued that self-awareness is a sine qua non of religious faith, and that the process of self-discovery and self-giving may lead far beyond the limits of conventional morality.
Canon Philp questions the force of this argument-and of the evidence adduced to support it-as 'bad psychology.' He is himself a former Lecturer in Social Psychology, has written on Freud and Jung, and is a Fellow of the British Psychological Society.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
