Spirituality is most often understood as a religious term remote
from the social interactions of everyday life and from political
motivations. This volume seeks to show that this is an erroneous
view and that, unless we attend to the spiritual as a motivating
force in the lives of individuals and communities, we shall
misconceive the nature of social change and political complexity
and lack awareness of the value of writing and thinking on the
subject in relation to contemporary issues. In a world dominated by
globalization and late-capitalist free-market economics we face a
situation of increasing complexity in human affairs. In this
context, diverse notions of the spiritual in relation to culture
and identity are critical forces that require careful attention.
Contemporary Spiritualities is an innovative study based on
research into the significance of influential writers and thinkers
and diverse communities. It seeks to map influences on the notion
of the spiritual in relation to the cultural and religious
plurality of contemporary society. It also promotes the importance
of attending to spirituality in both academic and a socio-politcal
context. Clive Erricker is Reader in the Study of Religions at
University College Chichester. Jane Erricker is Principal Lecturer
and Director of Research in the School of Education at King
Alfred's College, Winchester.
