Spiritualities of life : new age Romanticism and consumptive capitalism by Paul Heelas ( )

20 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores the ways in which inner-life spirituality has been experienced, understood, and valued in western society. In doing so, it traces the development of modern spiritualities of life, from the origins of Romanticism in the late-eighteenth century, through to the counter-cultural sixties and on to the wellbeing culture. The result is an insightful account of the spiritual landscape." "In a provocative argument, Heelas takes on the belief that holistic spirituality is merely an extension of capitalism in which people consume spirituality without giving anything back. He contends that much of the wide range of popular mind-body-spirit practices are really an ethically charged force for the "good life". These expressivist and humanist spiritualities, he argues, are helping us to find balance in the face of the suffocating demands of twenty-first century living."--Jacket

"This volume brings together a selection of readings which illustrate and analyse religion's encounters with the forces of modernization - including nationalism, capitalism, colonialism, democracy, gender and identity politics." "Drawing on scholarly analysis, empirical research and concrete examples, the book offers a picture of a religious world which is increasingly characterized by the coexistence of: old faiths and new spiritualities, a turn to tradition and a turn to experience, decline and revival, privatization and political militancy, tolerance and intolerance." "Religion in Modern Times offers a new framework and language for making sense of religion today."--Jacket
