The relationship between religion and science is a problem significant for a psychology based on the notion that individuals construct their own worlds. The issue is equally pertinent to any of the constructivist perspectives but is most clearly seen in one particular psychology, personal construct psychology (Kelly, 1955). In this last perspective, we see the clearest example of the apparent tension that arises between that psychology’s model of the person as “scientist” on the one hand, and religion – which traditionally stands opposed to science – on the other. Through a reconstruction of religion, we see a way out of the impasse.
