The precipitous decline in membership amongst traditional organised religions and accompanying rise in the so-called “religious nones,” or those identifying as “spiritual but not religious,” has been a topic of much discussion. The simultaneous resurgence in popularity of esoteric spiritual practices, however, from interest in divination to more or...
Chapter
This chapter explores how to cultivate wisdom through public education. To educate for wisdom, we need to be clear about our target outcome. We suggest a wise student is one who is healthy and well-integrated physically, personally, intellectually and socially—what Rogers called “a fully functioning person.” Educational programs need specific indic...

While there have been many advances in the psychology of wisdom in the last 30 years, mainstream research has yet to take into serious account the role of religion in developing wisdom. Instead, the majority of research has focused on the influence of age or life experience. To examine the relative contributions of faith, age, and personal wisdom t...

NOTE: This paper is open-access. You can access the full-text at the journal's website for free. The use of psychedelic substances in both humanistic and mainstream clinical research has been increasing in the last decade. In particular, the practice of microdosing—ingesting sub-hallucinogenic doses of psychedelics—has been increasing in populari...

Distraught individuals sometimes turn to religion for solace, particularly in old age, so spirituality is not necessarily positively related to well-being. However, spirituality might lead to greater well-being if it promotes self-transcendent wisdom. Using a sample of 307 respondents from six nations (USA, Canada, Serbia, Ukraine, Iran, and China)...

The physical distancing measures necessitated by COVID-19 have resulted in a severe withdrawal from the patterns of daily life, necessitating significantly reduced contact with other people. To many, such withdrawal can be a major cause of distress. But, to some, this sort of withdrawal is an integral part of growth, a pathway to a more enriching l...

In his 1971 treatise A Theory of Justice, the philosopher John Rawls invites readers to contemplate a hypothetical ideal society from what he terms “the original position.” Readers are asked to consider the features of a society they would wish to be born into from a viewpoint in which they know nothing of their future life in this society; they co...

An increasing amount of attention in psychological research is being paid to efforts to replicating the results of prior studies (Earp & Trafimow, 2015; Fabrigar & Wegener, 2016). At the same time, the psychological study of wisdom has reached sufficient maturity to begin reflecting on the validity of its own methods, both conceptually and with reg...

This is the first electroencephalogram study exploring the personal perspective effect on wise advising. Participants advised hypothetical protagonists in life dilemmas from both the 2nd- and 3rd-person perspective. Their advice for each dilemma was rated by two independent raters on wisdom criteria, i.e., metacognitive humility, metacognitive flex...

Background: The use of psychedelic substances like LSD and magic mushrooms in research and to treat mental health conditions has been increasing in the last decade. In particular, the practice of microdosing – using sub-hallucinogenic amounts of psychedelics – has been increasing (Anderson et al., 2019), but large-scale systemic qualitative analyse...

Recent academic discussion of magic has largely fallen into three camps: the psychological study of magical thinking, in an effort to explain it away; the sociological or anthropological study of magical beliefs and practices, remaining agnostic about their efficacy; and some attempts to make magic presentable as a subject of serious cognitive scie...
Article
The prosperity gospel is one of the fastest growing religious movements in America. With popularized figures like Joel Osteen and Creflo Dollar performing services to sold-out stadiums, new converts are drawn by the optimism-infused messages of positivity and financial wealth. Here we offer a formal scientific test of prosperity gospel’s impact on...
