At the threshold of the 21st Century many people are encountering a spiritual dilemma, where neither secularism nor religion seem adequate. The Psychology of Mature Spirituality addresses this dilemma. Its three sections - integrity, wisdom, and transcendence - describe and analyse a mature form of spirituality that will be a hallmark of future years. Distinguished contributors develop these three themes, showing the reader how human development over the lifespan can lead to a belief system that places neither god(s) nor humankind at the metaphorical centre of the universe. What they describe is a new 'skeptical spirituality'. Combining developmental psychology, depth psychology, and religious studies, The Psychology of Mature Spirituality is a timely and accessible volume which will appeal not only to those involved in psychology, psychoanalysis and religious studies, but also to the intersted general reader.
