Dr. Howard Gardner proposed that intelligence is multi-faced and suggests there are several distinct types. This book explores the features, scope and function in personality development of Spiritual Intelligence (SIQ). It begins with an overview of spiritual intelligence and its place in intelligence and personality theory. Later chapters place it in the historical context of the world’s religions and philosophies, from ancient times to the present. There is a Spiritual Awareness Inventory to measure reader spiritual awareness, practical exercises, and a list of recommended readings, augmented by an index and bibliography.
