About this book
With a decline in traditional religious belief, interest in spirituality has grown hugely in Western cultures. The notion of spirituality expresses the fact that many people are driven by goals that concern more than material satisfaction. Philip Sheldrake explores the historical foundations of spirituality and considers how it transforms lives.
Looks at the impact of spirituality on religion and philosophy, but also on anthropology and psychology. Explores the concept of the spiritual experience.
