Transpersonal Psychologies

Tart, Charles T. (Ed.).

 The authors of the chapters in this anthology have attempted to present the spiritual disciplines with which each is familiar as a psychology. In a very real sense this book does for various spiritual traditions (Buddhism, yoga, Gurdjieff, Arica training, Sufism, Mystical Christianity, Western magic, and Zen Buddhism) what Lindzey and Hall's Theories of Personality does for Freud, Jung, Allport, etc. Psychologist/parapsychologist Tart is basically concerned with the development of sciences for various altered states. The first 150 pages of the book consist of three seminal chapters by Tart: "Science, States of Consciousness, and Spiritual Experiences: The Need for State-Specific Sciences"; "Some Assumptions of Orthodox, Western Psychology"; and "The Physical Universe, the Spiritual Universe, and the Paranormal." The various contents of the book are tied together by an index and a useful 11-page bibliography.
