Abstract / Bemerkung
This concluding chapter places our study in context by linking it not only to our first book on deconversion (Streib, Hood, Keller, Csöff, & Silver, 2009), but by suggesting how this text is a second in a trilogy that compliments this cross-sectional etic and emic study of the semantics of spirituality with a longitudinal study of faith development forthcoming. We begin with philosophical support for our stand of methodological agnosticism which sustains our use of ultimate concern and transcendence (vertical and horizontal) to map individuals and groups in a two-dimensional space, the religious field. In addition, for empirical reasons we create an additional two dimensional space to map individuals and groups in our study in terms of Hood’s M-scale as a measure of spirituality and the openness to experience scale. Finally, we address criticisms of cross-cultural psychology applied to universalizing measures such as mysticism. We claim that mysticism and the religious styles perspective are appropriate for investigating – and mapping – commonalities and differences between Germany and the USA on the semantics of “spirituality.”
